Take a trip to the All Things Marketplace in Corktown on Friday, where Detroit Dog Rescue will be on from 3-7 p.m. in honor of National Dog Day.

Rescue dogs will be available to meet, pet, adopt and head home with great families.  To help the neighborhood non-profit,

a no-kill dog shelter, and its initiatives to rescue train, and re-home dogs, Detroit Dog Rescue products will be for sale on-site and online.

From emotional support puppies to famous Dearborn dogs, Michigan has an array of backgrounds for the holiday and plenty of ways to celebrate.

National Dog Day is Aug. 26 every year, initially created in 2004 by pet and family lifestyle advocate Colleen Paige,

who chose that day specifically because it is when her family brought their dog home when she was 10 years old. 

The holiday's mission is to celebrate dogs, raise awareness about the number of dogs in shelters, and encourage adoption. 

The Humane Society of the United States and West Coast Labrador Retriever Rescue are just two rescue organizations that have partnered with people

in charge of the occasion to enhance the cause's awareness. Together, they highlight the large number of dogs that are homeless and work

For dog owners not looking to adopt, the day has become a great time to spend with your furry friend.
