Awww.

Prince William and his new wifey Catherine have adopted an endangered baby penguin called Acorn, a British zoo revealed on Friday.

But Acorn will not be not be moving in with the royal newlyweds any time soon, Chester Zoo.

He will instead remain at the zoo in north-west England with 49 other Humbolt penguins.

"Hopefully the happy couple will come and see little Acorn playing in his pool very soon,"

Said a spokesman for the zoo, which gave the penguin to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as a wedding present.

"It's a real honour to be able to boast Prince William and Kate as penguin adopters."

The zoo had asked followers on social networking sites to choose which of its 400 different species the couple should sponsor.

The Humbolt penguins, which are thought to be declining in number due to overfishing of their food and habitat loss, received more than 20 percent of the votes.

Ellen DeGeneres' pet food donates 5 million meals to charity

Ellen DeGeneres' pet food company Halo, Purely for Pets®, is celebrating officially reaching their incredible goal of donating 5 million meals to pets in shelters!

This fantastic news comes just 3 months after the television personality's pet food company became the sole provider to support Freekibble.com and reached their initial goal of 1 million meals donated to animal shelters across the nation.

Awesome job, guys!

This charitable milestone coincides with Halo's joint effort along with PETCO to sponsor the National Adoption Weekend at PETCO locations nationwide April 9 and 10.

Last year, the event found homes for nearly 4,000 pets and this year, the organizers hope to surpass that number.

Ellen DeGeneres is reaching out to her fans and possible pet parents around the country, saying:

“Think adoption first – that’s what PETCO is always trying to encourage people to do because there are thousands of really cute, sweet homeless pets that really need our help.”

Anyone who attends the event at their local PETCO will receive $2 off any bag of Halo Spot's Stew dog or cat food AND for every coupon used during April, one meal will be donated to a shelter!

Even better, one lucky winner will be selected to donate 10,000 meals to the shelter of his or her choice.

So what are you waiting for? Click here to get your coupon and get a bag of Halo pet food this weekend at PETCO!
