BURLINGTON, N.C. — All shelter pets want for Christmas is a forever home - and hopefully, that's what the pets at Burlington Animal Services (BAS) will get thanks to two special visitors. 

Santa and The Grinch stopped by the shelter to pose for pictures with adoptable pets. 

Burlington Animal Services hopes the professional photos will help these pets get adopted for the holidays. BAS says it was Santa's first visit ever to the shelter and the pets loved him!
