Jacksonville, NC – August 16, 2021 – The Hanks were saddened to learn on Friday the 13th of August, 2021, that Curry – their beloved 7-year-old Border Collie mix, died earlier that day during a grooming related incident at Animal House, a business located at 665 Bell Fork Road, Jacksonville, NC, which provides grooming, lodging, and doggie day camp services.
