Mac & Cheese, introduced by Jamie Lee Curtis during White’s in memoriam, has found her permanently home.
John Travolta and his youngest son Ben, 11, have adopted the puppy featured in the tribute to the late Betty White at the 94th Academy Honors on Sunday.
Travolta shared a snapshot with Mac & Cheese on Instagram Monday, saying thanks to pet adoption service Paw Functions and presenter Jamie Lee Curtis, who memorably took the Oscars stage with the pup to honor White, a noted animal rights activist, during the ceremony’s in memoriam.
” She was not just a Golden Girl, she was a tale who brightened every room she walked in and brought a smile to the faces of all who saw her on the screen,” Curtis claimed on stage. “And day in and day out for nearly a century, she was a lady who cared a lot for not simply her two-legged buddies but for animals much like this.”
Curtis proceeded, “The greatest present you could provide Betty White is to open your heart and your house and adopt a rescue dog much like Mac & Cheese from Paw Works. So thank you, Betty, thank you for being a buddy to us all.”
Curtis called Travolta’s fostering a “magical finishing to the story” in her own Instagram article, sharing that she reconnected with Travolta whom she starred contrary with in the 1985 romance drama Perfect– ahead of the show.
” I had already left the Dolby theater last evening after honoring Betty White and got on my method home when somebody texted me a picture of John holding little mac & cheese in the green room before his presentation of the best actor Oscar,” Curtis shared. “I thought it was so beautiful to see him with her and then today I found out that he and his kid, Ben have actually adopted beautiful little mac & cheese and are taking her house today.”
She included, “It is a psychological end and a perfect tribute to Betty White and it shines a light and AMPLIFIES the message that heroes who, like Betty, and Chad from @pawworks and Nancy from @perfect_pet_rescue and the group at @maedayrescue and the thousands of thousands of other saves, who love and sustain ANIMALS, that saving animals and offering them sanctuary from the storm of life and a warm and loving home is one of life’s most important actions we humans can take!”
