For me both animals and plants have souls at least until I have evidence otherwise. Rationally I can argue my precepts for a soul is the capacity to feel - experience, to think, and communicate beyond innate and conditioned behaviors. For me today that exists with both animals and plants while ponder microbiology. I don't mind if I am called blasphemous, weird, or whatever . . . I am today open minded toward those premises.
They better. I want to see my baby kitty first thing when I enter the gates. Right after Jesus, of course.
Yes, animals have souls. I knew this 20 years ago. Animals have feelings. They love, cry, laugh, feel happiness & sadness. All evolved & enlightened people KNOW that animals have souls. Of course, there is an animal afterlife also. Humans aren't the only ones who have an afterlife.
If JESUS is returning on "A White Horse," (Rev 19:11-16) need you ask?
I love animals so much I may have spoken against WORD!
Speak to me Rich!
behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True
and also is mentioned;
There are also armies clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.
looks like horses(a bunch) in heaven to me.
Let's search "deeper!" "...is (called?) Faithful and True?" Sounds like a false prophet (v12) "...& he had a name written, that no man knew(?), but he himself?" Sounds like an anti-Christ! What say ye? Look @ v 20?
Rev 19:15 From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.
I don't think the anti-Christ has a sword
You are RIGHT according to WORD!
Don't think "I" know ALL! I usually speak only where (HE) Holy Spirit directs! Just love animals so much (pitiful creatures) the flesh responded, but NEVER w/o WORD!
Hosea 2:18 "In that day I will also make a covenant for them With the beasts of the field, The birds of the sky And the creeping things of the ground. And I will abolish the bow, the sword and war from the LAND, And will make them lie down in safety.
God makes covenants with animals so there is more that goes on with animals than we know. We don't know because most of the covenants He made with humans are not understood, let alone the animals. Perhaps the covenants He made with them is none of our business.
The song that sings "when we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be", needs to be realized that we are not getting far. When we or animals go to sleep we return to dust. When Christ returns He is returning to the earth, not Heaven. When the dead in Christ rise first they are rising from the earth not heaven.
After realizing "Going to Heaven for eternity" is a nice myth, no animals do not go to heaven and we don't either. The soul part I can't speak to I'm not certain about many aspects such as soul, spirit etc. things the flesh and brain can only assume much about.
Yes the lion will lie down with the lamb but that will happen right hear on the earth, not the heaven in the sky. I'm sure many things in the heavens are already happening, that is why we are to pray His will be done on EARTH as it is in the heavens. In time it will be His way and only His children will be part of it.
Animals I'm sure will be involved but not as humans, so treating animals like humans and making assumptions that their make up is like ours is a bit of a deception. They are a different creation that can bring us Joy, lets not make them into something they are not.
Amen! I haven't studied Revelation! My calling was to teach "The Gospel of Christ" & HIM crucified! Found I Cor 15:35-58! Praise be to GOD!
Genesis 9:5 also says
And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being.

In your personal spiritual beliefs, do animals have souls? Are they interchangeable with human souls? In the past few days I've spent some time looking into my dog's eyes, and I can't decide what I believe...

There has been such a heated discussion about pets when they pass. I am curious, do you believe all animals go to heaven or do you believe in something else? When our beloved Cocker Spaniel passed away last year, I believe he went to heaven and I also believe he had his own individual soul. What...

For the very many years I was in Church attendance, the Kingdom of God was always equated with Heaven. It was a future event that only those who believed in Jesus would see either when they died or were raptured, whilst the remainder of humanity would go to hell. A Christian could be disqualified...
