Pawtastic Friend Las Vegas
 Michael and Melissa Novelli are originally from Franklin Park, Illinois & Chicago, Illinois. They both relocated to Las Vegas. Michael in 1998 and Melissa in 1999. They were friends that lost touch and reconnected in Las Vegas years later. A year after reconnecting they got married in 2007.


About six years ago, they walked into the local shelter wanting to make a difference in the world. They started filming videos to showcase the nature of the dogs with the hopes to shine a light on their personalities. That’s how ‘Tuesday Videos’ started. They went every Tuesday and built an audience that quickly supported their motto of “every share is an opportunity” and “adopt don’t shop”. They also started to walk the dogs as well as building connections with many. The Enrichment Scholarship Project came to life allowing the community to sponsor a shelter or rescue dog to attend enrichment training. After each session, the sponsors are sent an update and pictures, allowing the sponsor to engage and share the dogs journey to his/her happily ever after. Join Melissa, Michael and the entire Pawtastic Friends team as we encourage more happiness for dogs!
