Do Dogs (and Cats) Go To Heaven?
For those of you who have come to this page because you have recently lost a dearly beloved dog (or cat) let me express my deepest sympathies over the loss of your dear friend. I have lost several special pets and understand the terrible sadness such an experience can bring. (Please visit the Memorials section of The Three M’s’ Cat Page and A Celebration of Life: His Royal Oranginess King Marmalade.)
While the Bible doesn’t directly tell us whether or not pets will go to heaven, it does tell us that “all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28). What God has planned for us in heaven is wonderful beyond our understanding! It will be as wonderful as the scene described in “The Rainbow Bridge” poem. (You may wish to start your journey into this topic by reading this poem if you have not seen it before.)
For more detailed information, take a look at an article called, “Do Pets Go to Heaven?” (Includes lots of places for you to look in the Bible about heaven and animals.)
