Do you think animals go to heaven when they pass away?
According the Ecclesiastes 3:19-21 all men and animals come from the dust and go to the dust, that humans have no advantage over the animals. Does this mean beloved pets also go to heaven when they pass on? Wouldn't that be wonderful?
Of course, they do. They'll wait for you until you get there so you're reunited with your loved ones and be happy together forever.
I've written a hub on this:

I hope it helps answer your question.
what would heaven be without our beloved pets? Yes without a doubt I believe they do. God knows how wonderful the animals they are essential to us as human beings.
Animals most certainly go to heaven and join the ones they loved while they were on earth. Animals most likely would join the family of animals that they came from and would always remember the one's who had them as pets and would be with them again if they choose to.
I am going to say this like Will Rogers said it; if animals don't go to Heaven I want to go where they go when they die!
If Heaven is the wonderful place it is described as there is no way I could be happy there unless all my babies were with me; even my ultra bad big-man cat, Pierre!!
I do. Scripture tells us that "all creation" groaned for a savior. That doesn't just mention man. I do believe it.
They go where they want to go. Do they even understand the concept of Heaven?
i believe all animals go up to heaven when they are gone. At least, they are far better than humans . That's why cats and dogs have 9 lives, keep reborn for being good. If hell, you can't get away from being burn.
John 3:16 " For God so loved the world that "whosoever" believes in Him..." There is a school of thought that considers "the lamb" to be Israel and "the lion" to be the enemies of Israel and that Biblical references to them are metaphorical. If animals go to be with their owners, where do the strays go? If the owner doesn't go to heaven, where does the animal go? One's acceptance of Christ is individual and does not cover family or animals. I don't know why it would be an issue. All focus in heaven will be on God ... not each other or animals.
There was a related question earlier about what to say to someone who's beloved pet has just died. I responded to that by giving a link to The Rainbow Bridge, the most wonderful response to that question. But part of that answer refers to the animals going to heaven to wait for those beloved people they used to own and what they do while they're waiting. It is beautiful to read and you would find a lovely answer to the present question being asked.

I believe they do and that they are loyally awaiting our arrival. Such a beautiful thought.
Leviticus 17:11 "For the soul of the flesh is in the blood; and I have ordained it for you upon the alter, to make atonement for your souls, for the blood it is which makes atonement by means of the soul." I believe that any living thing that has a soul can go to heaven. And I am sure animals have souls.
From Christianity Today "Most interpreters of the Bible assume that man’s likeness to God and animals’ subservience to man implies that animals may have the "breath of life," nephesh in Hebrew, but not an immortal soul in the same sense as man’s."
I sure hope so. Many animals bring so much joy just from a single sight or interaction with them and are proven to bring down stress levels for those who interact with them. They bring so much joy and peace without ever being able to say a word (unless you have a talking bird).

What question is better? The world will never end, or there will be a new heaven and earth?I've heard that the earth will expire in some million years. From Bible verse there is going to be a new heaven and earth and all former things are to pass away. I also believed that the way...

Would it be weird to turn your beloved dog into a coat when they pass away?People choose to morn and remember their beloved pets in many ways.

Do you agree with this? It seems to me that some of the holier than thou christians on this site legitimately believe with all their heart that those who do not believe in their god will have special front row tickets to hell/eternal punishment, yet still try to play off that their god is just and...

Will homosexuals go to heaven or hell when they die?I'm an atheist, but I've always thought that the Bible adamantly condemns homosexuality. Do homosexuals have any chance of getting into heaven? This has always confused me. In God's eyes, is being homosexual no more different than...
