Ebola survivor Nina Pham is reunited with her dog Bentley at the Dallas Animal Services Center.

When nurse Nina Pham contracted Ebola, she requested her dog, Bentley, be taken care of and monitored for the disease and not euthanized – similar to what was done with an Ebola-exposed dog in Spain.

The City of Dallas released a list of Ebola-related expenses, showing that care for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel reached $27,000, about 17% of the total costs.

Here is the breakdown of Bentley's expenses:

Supplies for Pet care - $1,068.96

Generator and labor for Pet care facility - $2,052.96

Facilities make ready and security at pet care facility - $17,057.46

Pet Care for Patient One - $259.78

Pet clean up - $6,445.00

Pet care/clean up - $938.00

Total Expenses - $26,884.16

Dallas' Director of Public Information, Sana Syed, said that $19,000 of Bentley's bill will be reimbursed by donations and grants.
