Where Do Animals Go When They Die?

Animal Lover Add comments

While preparing the food for our pet cats this morning, my cousin Joy asked me a very interesting question that I really gave time to research and find an answer to it. As I ponder about that question, I tend to ask more questions revolving that matter. Do animals have souls? Do they have spirits? If they do have spirits, do all animals go to heaven when they die? What about snakes? Do snakes get to enter the gates of heaven, too?

When I did my research, different websites offers different answers. One website says that Theologians say that animals do not have any souls. They point out that man was created superior to animals and that animals can’t be equal with him.

Another site suggested that animals do have spirits.

There are millions of websites that offer answer to that question.  Many would say that since man has been created in the likeness of God and is superior above all creations, therefore animals cannot be on the same level as man is. Since man has spirit and soul, animals do not possess it.

I put faith and love above this. There can be a lot of biblical arguments as to whether or not an animal has a spirit or a soul. What I believe in is that when our dear pets die, they cross a rainbow bridge where they meet their other friend animals. And at that side of the rainbow bridge, our dear pets will no longer be hungry and sad. That they will stay there happy and gay and playing with other animals. I believe that it is the place that God made for them. I believe that our beloved departed pets are now enjoying and playing with God as well. :)

It is quite painful to remember a death of a dear pet but knowing and believing that God has created a special place for them makes me feel okay. I believe that somewhere in that place our little Ro and Tom, Chi-Chi, my dear cat Sheng-Sheng; our beloved dogs Haiti, Tico and Chin-Chin are enjoying each other’s company and playfully licking God’s hand as He tickle them. :)

Such lucky animals!
