I heard that animals has souls too. If that's true, will they have a place in heaven or hell?

I can prove animals go to heaven. Heavens is supposed to be the most perfect place that is our reward for being good. Well no place would be perfect if there were no animals. How many times have you read about dogs or cats saving the family life? I don't believe God would not allow animals in to Heaven. If some one goes to Heaven who does not like animals then I am sure they are put somewhere where there are no animals. If you want to be honest you would have to agree that animal's belong in heaven much more then most humans. If an animal hurts a human it because the human threatened the animals. Humans kill animals just for so called fun. Do they have souls? The better question is Do humans have souls?

I'm not a Christian, so I don't believe in heaven. but I KNOW that animals have souls, no greater or lesser than our own, and whatever faces us in the next life faces them too. if the concept of heaven is somewhere where we are with our loved ones and eternally happy, well that wouldn't be a place where we weren't reunited with our loved pets. a heaven without animals would be no heaven at all.

There is a place called Limbo where children and animals all innocent souls will rest in peace. That is my belief. They give us so much of comfort while in this world and they deserve a place to rest in peace.

All animals will go to heaven because they are pure and sincere beings who never harm anyone unless their existence is threatened . They never hunt for sport and they follow the rule 'live and let live'. All these qualities endear them to God.

I am sure animals have souls. They must go to Heaven. I don't think any animals would go to Hell because, even the fierce ones are only doing as nature intended. They don't hurt anyone just for fun or do other mean things that humans do.

Years ago someone asked Billy Graham about animals in heaven and he answered that if they're necessary for your happiness, he thought they'd be there. I hope he's right. As far as animals going to hell, I can't see that happening since they either do things instinctively or by being trained.

Animals are in Heaven I have no doubt of that. Being Catholic and my religion teaches animals have no soul I don't believe that. I can't imagine God creating animals and none of them being in Heaven. I have also seen to many videos of animals showing how they love their babies and mates. We have seen many apes, gorillas, monkeys acting very human. My dog Bandit tries very hard to communicate with me and she understands a lot of words I have taught her. I think animals are a lot smarter than we give them credit for and I believe they do have a soul. When Adam was first naming animals he was in the garden of eden which would be in Heaven. Adam and Eve were sent down to Earth. Can anyone imagine Heaven with no birds singing in the trees with the angels? There are no animals in hell.

Yes, I certainly believe that animals will go to either heaven or hell. In fact, I believe that all living beings will. Heaven and hell aren't just places specially reserved for human beings.

I believe my animals will be with me in heaven. And because I believe that, they too must have souls...they sure have funny personalities.
