“Ben adopted this dog from last nights Oscar tribute to Betty White. Thank you @curtisleejamie & @pawworks,” Travolta wrote in the caption.

Posting the photo on her own Instagram, Curtis called the adoption “A MAGICAL ending to the story from last night.”

She went on to reveal how she “reconnected” with Travolta, with whom she costarred in the 1985 film Perfect, at the ceremony and was on her way home when she received a photo via text of Travolta holding the sweet lil’ puppy.

“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,” Curtis wrote.

Curtis continued, “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.”

Dog rescue Paw Works also praised the adoption on Instagram, writing, “On a night of winners and losers, we think Mac N Cheese is the biggest winner of all!”
