LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Louisville Metro Council created a special committee to look into complaints surrounding Louisville Metro Animal Services.

It all stems from an investigation by an online publication, The Ville Voice, and a pit bull named Sadie, who needed her leg amputated.

According to the report the agency took money raised for Sadie's surgery and spent it on another dog. Sadie was put down before she could get care.

The new committee will look into those allegations.

“If all those facts are as they are portrayed…we want to review what's going on at Animal Services overall,” Kelly Downard said.

The committee holds their first meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 27.

Metro Animal Services has been without a director since Justin Scally left in May 2013.
