    Ebola survivor Nina Pham and her dog Bently made a generous donation to Dallas Animal Services Monday.

    DAS quarantined and monitored Pham's dog for Ebola while she recovered from the potentially deadly disease in October.

    City officials previously said they spent about $27,000 to care for Bentley during his quarantine. To try to say thank you, Pham raised $1,500 selling T-shirts featuring her dog.

    "I'd like to publicly announce my support for Dallas Animal Services and their efforts. When I got sick they stepped up to care for my best friend and companion Bentley. I would now like to return the favor in supporting them and their fundraiser to raise money for animals in need. Thank you DAS for all that you do. Bentley and I approve this message!" Nina Pham said in November.

    In all, the City of Dallas said they spent more than $150,000 fighting the Ebola outbreak.
