Denny answers:The Bible doesn't say what will happen to animals when they die.
Our pets are fun to play with and often seem like a member of our families. But animals are not the same as people. God didn't give them a spirit or a thinking brain like we have. They do not know right from wrong. They cannot pray to God or trust Jesus as their Savior.
We can't know for sure if our pets will go to heaven, but God knows everything. God is perfect and good. So, we can be sure He has a good plan for us and for our pets.
Go back to:
- "A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel." Proverbs 12:10
- ""So God made the wild animals, the tame animals, and all the small crawling animals to produce more of their own kind. God saw that this was good. Then God said, 'Let us make human beings in our image and likeness. And let them rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the tame animals, over all the earth, and over all the small crawling animals on the earth.' So God created human beings in his image. In the image of God he created them. He created them male and female" (Genesis 1:25-27).
