In honor of the holiday, the "Boy In The Plastic Bubble" actor took to his social media with a heartwarming photo of his daughter, son, and the new pet.

John Travolta Adopted The Furry Pet At The Oscars

Back in March, The Blast disclosed that it was love at first sight for the "Pulp Fiction" actor and the rescue dog when they met at the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony. 

Curtis tributed the late Betty White with Mac N Cheese in tow during the “In Memoriam” segment of the Sunday Night ceremony.

The blonde beauty spoke on how she partnered with Paw Works to enlighten the public about pet adoption and rescue in White's honor.

The "Golden Girls" actress was a huge animal rights activist and lover during her lifetime. Curtis also posted photos of the dog with her former co-star Travolta.

The actress explained that she befriended Chad Atkins, the executive director and founder of Paw Works, which housed the sweet, beautiful puppy she brought on stage during her tribute. She continued,

“Chad and his team were incredible partners, and I selected mac & cheese from a big group of photographs of little rescue pups that they have on their website. They are a dedicated rescue, and I’m thrilled to partner with them, or shall I say PAWTNER with them…"

Curtis expressed her gratitude to Atkins, his team, and all the volunteers who helped save the lives of animals and find homes to welcome them.

Unknown to the "Perfect" actress, she had played matchmaker with her co-star and Mac N Cheese. The Blast exclusively learned that the two were almost inseparable.

Travolta played with the dog for about thirty minutes while backstage in the green room. An insider told us that he let her lick his face in mere minutes of seeing the dog.

The "Look Who's Talking" actor thought of taking Mac N cheese home with him right then, but he had to attend the Governor's Ball and some after-parties after the Oscar.

The lovestruck Travolta returned the dog to the rescue, but their parting was temporary. Following the night's festivities, he announced on Instagram that he reached out to Paw Works and adopted the adorable pet.

Last October,  Travolta commemorated his wife's posthumous birthday with a touching tribute. The Hollywood icon, who lost Preston to a two-year battle with breast cancer on July 12, 2020, uploaded an image of her smiling and waving on a red carpet to his Instagram page.

The patriarch captioned the beautiful image by warmly greeting his late wife, “Happy Birthday, Kelly. We miss and love you very much.”

The lovebirds met while doing a screen test for their 1989 comedy film "The Experts." They tied the knot two years later, in 1991.

The couple proceeded to be married for 28 years with three offspring. Unfortunately, their eldest son Jett passed away from a seizure while vacationing in the Bahamas in 2009.
