I truly believe so yes.   I believe that God has compassion for ALL that he has made and cares for ALL creatures and that is how we are supposed to be.   But I cannot prove it and I quess some will answer no and say it is reserved for humans or say that God does not exist at all. Very deep subject!

Yes, I believe so.  Some people believe they wont, but why would God create animals to be our companions and have a special place in our hearts and lives, if we were then separated at heavens door. That makes no sense whatsoever to me. So I choose to believe, YES, animals  go to heaven   ...  And we will be reunited with our loved pets when we get there.

The soul and the spirit are the two primary immaterial aspects that Scripture ascribes to humanity. It can be confusing to attempt to discern the precise differences between the two. The word “spirit” refers only to the immaterial facet of humanity. Human beings have a spirit, but are we not spirits. However, in Scripture, only believers are said to be spiritually alive (1 Corinthians 2:11; Hebrews 4:12; James 2:26), while unbelievers are spiritually dead (Ephesians 2:1-5; Colossians 2:13). In Paul's writing, the spiritual was pivotal to the life of the believer (1 Corinthians 2:14; 3:1; Ephesians 1:3; 5:19; Colossians 1:9; 3:16). The spirit is the element in humanity which gives us the ability to have an intimate relationship with God. Whenever the word “spirit” is used, it refers to the immaterial part of humanity that “connects” with God, who Himself is spirit (John 4:24).
The word “soul” can refer to both the immaterial and material aspects of humanity. Unlike human beings having a spirit, human beings are souls. In its most basic sense, the word “soul” means “life.” However, beyond this essential meaning, the Bible speaks of the soul in many contexts. One of these is humanity’s eagerness to sin (Luke 12:26). Humanity is naturally evil, and our souls are tainted as a result. The life principle of the soul is removed at the time of physical death (Genesis 35:18; Jeremiah 15:2). The soul, as with the spirit, is the center of many spiritual and emotional experiences (Job 30:25; Psalm 43:5; Jeremiah 13:17). Whenever the word “soul” is used, it can refer to the whole person, whether alive or in the afterlife.
The soul and the spirit are connected, but separable (Hebrews 4:12). The soul is the essence of humanity’s being; it is who we are. The spirit is the aspect of humanity that connects with God.

Christianity does not acknowledge that animals have souls, so no, they don't go to Heaven. It's also true because in the real world, neither heaven nor Hell actually exist.

If you are a Christian you believe in goodness to mankind and animals. If you are happy with your pet and the pet happy with you then surely this is a bond of love. Most genuine pet owners only think of good things for their best friend, whatever kind of animal it is. More commonly dogs are "mans best friend".  As`stated, if you are a Christian there is nothing wrong with believing that yor pet will go to heaven as a reward for his/her loyalty to you. I am all for letting children know that this is the case. Try it, it will make you feel good to believe it.

I believe animals go to heaven. I agree, why would our God create the wonderful creatures such as our "soulmates" and then take them away. I tell my children the same when they lose a beloved friend (pet) to death. I believe animals have souls. If you are an animal lover and you have one, you would know. Our dog can sense amazing things. She can sense pain on your face, hurt in your heart. Something without a "soul" could not do that I believe. She can sense when you are happy and scared. God has created many wonderful things that we as humans take for granted. It's our nature. But I truely believe, "All dogs go to heaven". And so do the rest of his animals.

Holy crap guys. A theory means its a proven fact. The big bang is not a theory, thus it is a guess, not made up mind you, but a guess.

No.   They do not have the power to say "I believe that God saved me from my sin."   So, thus they do not have a soul.

aileeny commented
Lilkrypt, You can still believe in something without proof, that is what faith (in anything) is all about. But what I am asking you is where do you believe this "better place" is then, where animals go to? Cheers.

I too strongly believe that animals have souls, ALL animals which prompts me to ask this, if you are a meat eater, what about the souls of the animals that you eat?

Well.. Each specie created by God either goes to heaven or hell.. As of what I ve heard is that heaven and hell is all here only.. To what you do in one lifetime, you face the consequences good or bad in your next birth.. So good things that happen to you is due to good thing that you have done in your past life and vice versa..

Yes i do! Whatever God has made, He loves, and He wants them to go to Heaven. But if they sin too many times on purpose in life, they must go to Hell. Even nonbelievers that are good go to Heaven! I believe that even though animals do not know about God, i think that a soul that is good and a spirit that is pure flows through their heart that is Jesus's home! So yes, i do believe that animals go to heaven! I believe my cat is up there right now and that i will be with him one day! Just my opinion, and very good subject!!!!

Yes.I believe in God and all animals will go to heaven when they die.Carnivores will also go to heaven.Why?Carnivores must eat meat to survive.They are just doing what they have to do and god made them like this.But for humans,some go to heaven if they are good and some go to hell if they sin and do not ask for forgiveness.

No. The bible helps us to appreciate the future of the animals on the earth for it says: “The wolf will reside for a while with the lamb, And with the young goat the leopard will lie down, And the calf and the lion and the fattened animal will all be together; And a little boy will lead them.The cow and the bear will feed together,And their young will lie down together.The lion will eat straw like the bull.

The nursing child will play over the lair of a cobra, And a weaned child will put his hand over the den of a poisonous snake. They will not cause any harm Or any ruin in all my holy mountain, Because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah As the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11:7-9)

I don't think so. I don't believe animals have souls. How can something that doesn't have a soul go to heaven? Besides not all humans are going to be going to heaven so why would God allow animals to go to heaven when pets cannot?
