The Animal Shelter and Care Committee's photo with the Grinch fundraiser drew in children from both Jefferson and Lewis and Clark counties. While some children ran to the Grinch excitedly, others turned at door and refused to go near  him.

Haasakker said the Grinch, who chose to remain anonymous, plays the part naturally and all year round while still caring. “Even though he’s grumpy, he really does have a big heart,” she told The Monitor.
