PICK: “Uncommon Dogs” photography showcase at Common House, May 11


Common House social club in the arts district is going to the dogs. That’s right, there will be seven dogs to view in larger-than-life format photography throughout all four floors of the club during the launch for “Uncommon Dogs,” a photography showcase by Wendy Humble.

As the organizers' website notes, these four-legged friends provide the best emotional support for humans when we need it the most. Donations at this event will be collected to benefit Fetch a Cure, a local nonprofit working to provide “pet cancer awareness, education and treatment funding to animals and pet parents in need” as well as Richmond Animal and Care Control (RACC), a favorite local animal shelter.
