Forward Pitts could make his Bulls debut in the Challenge Cup fifth round clash with Catalan Dragons on Saturday but three-quarter Arundel will have to wait for next week's Super League clash with Warrington as he is cup-tied.
Both players have only managed five appearances for the Black and Whites this season and coach Lee Radford was happy to give them the chance to secure more playing time with the struggling Bulls.
Bradford coach Francis Cummins said: "Jay and Joe are young, hungry and hugely talented individuals who we are extremely excited to have on board.
Proven track record
"I coached Jay at Leeds, so I know a fair bit about him, and Joe has a proven track record at this level. Both of them need to be playing in the sport's top flight and we are pleased to be able to provide them with opportunities to do so.
"Jay will bolster our pack, as he has an ability to play in a number of different positions, while Joe provides much-needed competition in our three-quarter line.
"I am sure both of them are itching to get out there and we are excited about what they can bring to the team.
"Considering their ages, both Jay and Joe have an immense amount of Super League experience, which we believe will pay dividends for us on the weeks and months ahead."
