LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A new reduced-fee schedule to adopt and redeem pets from Lawton Animal Welfare passed unanimously Tuesday through the city council. Starting April 25, you can get your lost pet that animal control picked up free of charge for the first offense only.

Adoption fees dropped as well. It's now $50 for dogs and $20 for cats. The only cost added was administrative and processing fees. The lower fees came in response to complaints from citizens who said the costs were too expensive and complicated. Animal welfare officials say they hope the changes will help lower the population at the animal shelter.

Also at the City Council meeting, the city created a committee to study possible locations for an expanded transit system transfer center. The current location is at Southwest 4th Street and 'B' Avenue, and is simply the site where all five bus routes converge.
