King Charles Spaniel Rescue Texas
Courtesy Dallas Animal Services and Adoption CenterIt was a bit of a challenge, but Bentley, the beloved dog of Ebola patient Nina Pham is now safe with Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center on the way to an undisclosed location.
It does not appear that any similar action will be taken in Texas, however, as Judge Mike Rawlings said that they will be taking good care of the pet while the 26-year-old nurse is in treatment.
The city's animal shelter is now caring for the dog at an undisclosed location, officials said. The Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center posted a note on its official Facebook page confirming their involvement and they wrote that they will be posting pictures "once we've shown the owner he's okay."
They also shared photos that showed a team of people in hazmat suits collecting the dog from Pham's apartment Monday afternoon.
