Eat, Drink, and Adopt at Fido's - the World's First Dog Tap House!
** Need to get out for a bite and also look into adopting a rescue dog? Celebrate National Mon and Pop Business Owners Day with this OGTV story about a special place that nourishes the stomach and the soul. **
When Fido's Rescue Founder Scott Porter was still in the discovery phase of starting a new business, he visited a Cat Café. "I didn't think the business was set up well," he remembered. "The patrons were complaining that the cats didn't want to play with them, and I'm thinking, that's because their cats!"
When he told this story at home, his son had an immediate inspiration - "if they only had dogs, that wouldn't be a problem."
This was the spark that led Scott to develop the idea of creating an environment where adoptable rescue dogs could have a way to comfortably meet and play with the patrons in the friendly confines of a neighborhood Tap Room. When he reached out to discuss his vision with several local charities, they were unanimously enthusiastic about the idea. One of those charities, OFOSA (Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals), has since become a partner and provides Fido's with rescued dogs from all over California.
Fido's is the first craft beer tap room with adoptable rescue dogs roaming the establishment as patrons! They have 40 taps of craft beer, cider and wine, along with food not often seen in a small beer bar. They celebrate craft beer and "Man's Best Friend" in a place where patrons can bring their own dogs… or visit with rescue dogs in a special "Fido room".
Since opening in Tigard, Oregon, on the outskirts of Portland, Fido's Rescue has already helped over 50 pups get adopted to families and friends. They are a mom and pop business, run by Scott Porter and his wife Vee, and the couple gets great pleasure from the people that visit and their rescue work. "The joy you get every day from going home to meet your dog," Scott explains, "is what we get every single day from the 3 or 4 rescue dogs here with us."
Watch how they do it, and if you're ever in the neighborhood, join them at Fido's to Eat. Drink. Adopt!
