LEAD – The power of the press helped empty overloaded Twin City Animal Shelter cages over the last month when an unfortunate situation arose that nearly tapped out volunteer manpower and resources at the Lead-Deadwood community’s entirely volunteer staffed animal shelter.

Shelter officials credited a Black Hills Pioneer story published Oct. 18 that resulted in an outpouring of community assistance that enabled volunteers to administer the rescue, as well as maintain service to the existing pens that were full prior to the influx.
