A dog walks into a bar and asks the bartender “Can I get a forever home?” But wait a minute! Is that even possible? It is if it happens at Fido’s Taphouse.

You see Fido’s isn’t just your run of the mill dog-themed pub, It’s the world’s first taphouse and dog rescue. That’s right. Fido’s taphouse is a one-stop-shop for food, drinks, dog-friendly charity events, and rescue! Fido’s partners with Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals, which pulls dogs from high-kill shelters on the west coast.
May I help you?
The taphouse hosts 4-8 adoptable dogs at a time who are ready to meet their forever family. Patrons can stop by to play with the dogs, schedule a meet and greet for the whole family, or just enjoy knowing that a portion of their bar tab goes to caring for dogs in need.
D is for doga
Fido’s tap house is the brainchild of Scott Porter, who credits his own dogs with helping him through hard times. After seeing his first cat café, Porter was inspired to create “a unique social environment dedicated to craft beer, food, and shelter dogs.” And we’re so happy he did.
The man behind Fido’s
So far, 70 dogs have been adopted through Fido’s taphouse. And don’t worry, just in case you’ve got your beer goggles on, patrons must abide by a short waiting period before taking home a dog, as well as bring in the entire family (dogs included!) for a meet and greet to ensure the perfect fit.
More rescue puppies, please
Teeny Teddy & Miles. Charities are not permitted by law to adopt out puppies till they are 12 weeks? I think it's 12…
So, if you want to grab a beer and give some belly rubs, head over to Fido’s taphouse, where the barks and kisses are free. Who knows, you may even find your forever friend. We hope so.

We love Fido’s taphouse almost as much as we love dogs. And that’s a lot!
