Mac and Cheese was the cute little homeless pup that joined Jamie Lee Curtis on stage at the Oscars on Sunday evening has now officially found a new home!

The pup was brought on stage for a tribute to the late great Betty White during the In Memoriam segment, White was a huge advocate for adoption, and that’s just what happened.

Following the telecast, John Travolta’s 11-year-old son adopted the pup. Here is what Jamie Lee Curtis had to say:

“A MAGICAL ending to the story from last night. At the Oscars I reconnected with my friend, John Travolta. @johntravolta We starred together in the movie PERFECT back in 1984. I had already left the Dolby theater last night after honoring Betty White and was on my way home when someone texted me a photo of John holding little mac & cheese in the green room before his presentation of the best actor Oscar. I thought it was so beautiful to see him with her and then today I found out that he and his son, Ben have adopted beautiful little mac & cheese and are taking her home today. It is an emotional 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 team at @maedayrescue and the hundreds of thousands of other rescues, who love and support ANIMALS, that rescuing animals and offering them shelter from the storm of life and a warm and loving home is one of life’s most important actions we humans can take! #adoptdontshop”
