Hello, my name is Kane

Update on September 17, 2020
Kane has improved so much in the last three months. He weighed 61 pounds this week. His liver enzymes have returned to normal and we are hopeful he can continue without liver supplements. After his last glucose curve he is now considered a controlled diabetic. We are so pleased with the progress he’s made. He is a loving dog ready for a loving home.

I’m a two year old neutered male mastiff mix. I came to the Monticello Veterinary Clinic for a routine castration surgery. I had an unforeseen complication from anesthesia; my stomach flipped and filled with gas (Gastric Dilatation Volvulus or Bloat). The doctors performed emergency surgery and several hours of critical care until I finally started to recover. My bloated stomach put a lot of pressure on my internal organs and as a result my liver and pancreas began to fail. After a few months of supplements and a special diet my liver is recovering, however, my pancreas has not. I am now an insulin dependent diabetic, requiring injections every 12 hours. I currently weigh 54 pounds but should be closer to 80. I am looking for a human that has time, patience, and the financial ability to join me on my road to recovery.

I have some special requirements for my daily care:

  • My doctor would like me to eat a special diet of either Hills l/d (for my liver) or Hills w/d (for my diabetes). To gain weight I need to eat at least 3 cups of food for breakfast and dinner, which is no problem because I’m ALWAYS hungry.
  • I take a liver supplement called Denamarin every morning with (or even better yet, before) breakfast.
  • After I eat I need an insulin injection that is regulated by my doctors at the Monticello Veterinary Clinic.
  • My doctors want to keep a close eye on me so I have weekly appointments at the Monticello Vet Clinic.

I am a very loving dog that just wants to get back into a loving home. I have been good with children and other dogs, although I am high energy and think all food I can see or reach should be mine!

If you think we would be a good fit for each other please return the adoption application to Dr. Jayme Freye at the Monticello Veterinary Clinic email (montivets@gmail.com) or fax (319-465-3495).

  • Thank you for your interest in adoption. The information on this page is presented so that you have a clear understanding of our adoption process and our philosophy behind it. It is also intended to help you come face-to-face with the reality of owning a dog. We all understand the emotional appeal of a sweet, furry face. However, we know firsthand that while many people like the idea of owning a pet, not everyone likes—and is willing to accommodate—the reality of having a pet in their life and home 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you agree to follow the process to the best of your ability and in a cooperative manner, please type in your name at the end of this form—this will carry the same weight as a signature.
  • Soul searching… Ask yourself these questions:

  • If you are interested in one of our dogs, completing the adoption application below is the first step. Once your application is received, a staff member will contact you to review your application. If all adoption requirements are met, an appointment will be set so you can meet the dog in which you are interested.

    If, upon meeting the pet you are interested in adopting him/her, we will complete the processing of your application. On the adoption application, we ask for three references so that we may cross-check information.

    If you leave any questions blank, we have the right to disqualify your application. It usually takes one week to process an adoption application. We are interested in finding the RIGHT home for a dog. This may not necessarily be the first person who applies to adopt a dog.

    Our procedure enables us to gather complete and well-rounded information. We want to make an informed and wise decision that will lead to a lifetime relationship between a family and pet.

    We do follow-up calls to help insure the placement is working, to hone our dog and cat evaluation skills, and to help with any questions that may arise. Our procedure is about righting a wrong. If an animal is being re-homed by us, something has already gone wrong in their life. We want to find them a home where they’ll be cherished and loved.

    Please realize that it may take up to two weeks for your pet to be comfortable in your home. It is possible that he/she may have some accidents during this adjustment period.

    I understand the AWF adoption procedure and agree to complete all questions on the application and provide any additional information requested by an AWF representative. I also understand that any false statements given on this application will disqualify me from adopting an AWF pet.
