John Travolta’s 11-year-old son adopts a puppy and pays tribute to Betty White, the actress who died in December

During the 94th Academy Awards, actress Jamie Lee Curtis paid tribute to staunch animal advocate Betty White. After showing the public the puppy of an association, she learned that he had been adopted by the son of John Travolta.

Actress Betty White, who died at the end of December 2021 at the age of 99, was known for her commitment to animals. During the Oscars ceremony, which took place on March 27, 2022, actress Jamie Lee Curtis wanted to pay tribute to the one who had supported animal protection associations.

To mark the occasion, she went on stage with a tiny ball of fur by the name of Mac N Cheese. “She was a woman who cared so much about her 2-legged friends, but also animals like this,” she said. These few minutes of glory allowed the puppy to say goodbye to the shelter that had taken him in.

The pup won a forever family at the end of the ceremony

As People magazine reported in an article the day after the event, Mac N Cheese was adopted. And not by anyone! The adorable dog caught the eye of an 11-year-old boy named Ben. The latter is none other than the son of actor John Travolta.

The Pulp Fiction star shared the happy news on her Instagram account. Internet users were pleased to discover a cute photo of the sixty-something and the child, holding his new furry friend in his arms. “Ben adopted this dog last night at the Oscars as a tribute to Betty White. Thanks @curtisleejamie & @pawworks,” John Travolta captioned.

Following the post, which has garnered more than 270,000 likes to date, Jamie Lee Curtis called the adoption a “magical ending.” Then, the actress added: “It’s a moving ending and a perfect tribute to Betty White. […] Saving animals, giving them shelter from the storm of life, a warm and loving home is one of the most important things in life that we humans can do! »
