CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Friday is National Dog Day and the Clarkstown Police Department is honoring its three K-9s.

National Dog Day, founded in 2004, is celebrated on Aug. 26 each year. . Besides drawing attention to the many dogs in need of rescue each year, the day honors both family dogs and those that do critical work -- whether in law enforcement or rescue situations, or assisting people with disabilities.

"We hope that Taz, Remy and Brody are enjoying their national day!" the department noted in a Friday Facebook post. "Make sure you give your dog a special treat today."

The official site for the holiday lists 20 different ways to celebrate, besides adopting, including these:

  • Volunteering at a local shelter.
  • Donating food, blankets or toys.
  • Hosting a National Dog Day party, inviting your friends and their canine companions -- and perhaps even creating some "pupcakes," if you're feeling frisky.
  • Walking the dog of an elderly or ill neighbor.
  • Buying your dog a new toy, collar or leash.

To learn about the adoptable animals from the Hi Tor Animal Care Center, Rockland County's animal shelter, visit its website or Facebook page. For information about dogs in the region or nationwide, check out Petfinder.
