Do animals go to heaven?

Here's the answer:

The Bible doesn't say if animals go to heaven or 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 aren't the same as people. God didn't give them a spirit or a thinking brain like we have. They can't pray to God or trust Jesus as their Savior.

The Bible tells us that there will be animals during the millennial kingdom (Isaiah 11:6; 65:25). But we don't know whether those animals were pets here on earth.

We can't know for sure if our pets will go to heaven, but God knows everything. He is perfect and good. So we can be sure He has a good plan for us and for our pets. When we get to heaven, we will be happy.

Bible Truth

"Those who do what is right take good care of their animals..." (Proverbs 12:10).

"God made all kinds of wild animals. He made all kinds of livestock. He made all kinds of creatures that move along the ground. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, 'Let us make man in our likeness. Let them rule over the fish in the waters and the birds of the air. Let them rule over the livestock and over the whole earth. Let them rule over all of the creatures that move along the ground.' So God created man in his own likeness. He created him in the likeness of God. He created them as male and female" (Genesis 1:25-27).
