We enjoy providing our readers with uplifting and inspirational stories. We were moved by this story and the hundreds of thousands of others who read it online. This anonymous man’s simple, unique act brought many people who saw it to tears.

A young woman named Madison Sorrel chose to take a dog home from the Tulsa Animal Welfare Shelter. The 20-year-old expected to bring home a dog, but she had no idea that a total stranger who just happened to be there would touch her heart.

Madison noticed a senior man approaching the shelter with a white plastic bag. When she understood why he had brought the tennis balls, she posted a photo on social media using her phone. She noticed the tennis balls in the bag right away; there were many of them.

“We heard that this man was distributing tennis balls in remembrance of a much-loved pet,” says the caption. I’m unsure what will happen if this doesn’t improve your day.

Madison’s tweet has been liked by over 200,000 people and shared thousands more times since her visit to the Tulsa shelter in early July. Many of the comments in reaction to the photo indicate how affected they were by the man’s selfless giving of the tennis ball to the shelter.

Madison stated, “I had no idea it would garner this much attention. ”.

Many ers who responded on social media, like Madison, had an immediate and emotional reaction to this man and his bag of balls. One person expressed their gratitude for the older man’s generosity to the shelter and the effort he spent gathering them and travelling to the ceiling in the first place.

Madison provided the following rationale for her desire to publish the photo: “It’s a lovely message,” she continued. “At any age, you can volunteer or make a donation. ”.

The identity of the older man is unknown. Still, Madison stated on Twitter that he was shown the photo by a family member and is aware of the beautiful response to his friendly gesture.

The Tulsa Animal Welfare Shelter confirmed the man’s generous donation and Madison’s account of the occurrence. According to them, “[the man] donated the tennis balls in memory of a much-loved dog. ”.

In reaction to the picture’s tremendous positive reception, the animal shelter commented on social media: “We appreciate donations from the community. Whether it’s food, blankets, or towels, every little thing helps. We get a lot of animals as a municipal shelter, especially this time of year. Donate to your local shelter!”.

We’re always looking for extra volunteers if you can’t bring stuff, said a shelter volunteer.

With 6.5 million companion animals entering animal shelters in the United States each year, there is an undeniable need for volunteers and supplies.

Do you know how many happy animals are at the Tulsa shelter due to that man’s generosity? It’s incredible how this man is honouring his deceased pet’s memory while enabling all other animals to enjoy playing with one of the balls.

Many people may be reluctant to express grief after losing a pet because they want to keep all the memories to themselves. Instead, he realised that, while he couldn’t bring his beloved buddy back, he could still bring joy to other suffering animals.
