Do animals go to heaven?” The apostle Paul wrote, “For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God” (Romans 8:20, 21, NKJV).
Although our sins have destroyed ourselves and nature, God will restore both. Just as animals were part of God’s uncorrupted, original creation, so they will be part of the world and life when He restores everything new—without the corruption of sin and death”.
Do animals go to heaven? Yes I truly believe they do. Animals were completely innocent until man sinned and brought death upon animals as well. God did not create thousands if not millions of animals to just let them die. They will be included in the Glorious Kingdom of Heaven along with all humans.
The Bible neither confirms this question or does it deny it, but the Holy Bible does give clues about animals in Heaven. See Isaiah 11:6,7,8 and verse 9. We don’t really know all the beautiful things that God has for us in heaven, but you can be sure God wants us to be happy there. There were animals in the beginning why does anyone think there will not be animals in the new heaven and the new earth?
Perhaps God will create for us a new pet, but I believe our beloved pet will be that new pet. God is a God of love and when God Created everything He looked around and said it was good. So do dogs go to heaven? Animals were created by God from the same dust He created humans from. “No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalms 84:11, NKJV). (Genesis 2:19).
We can be sure that if our pets make us happy here on earth they will be in Heaven waiting our arrival. Luke 3:6 says “And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” Animals have blood and breath and breath is the soul of man, so animals are flesh and they do have a soul. In the blood is the life of every creature. The soul is the breath of God that He breathed into man and into every living creature.
Revelation 19:11 says “Then I saw heaven open, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war,” So we know there are horses in heaven and they are animals. (Please also see Ecclesiastes 3:18-21).
Romans 8:21-22 says “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.” Notice here it says the creation not just the creation of man.
So do dogs go to heaven? A better question to ask is will there be animals in heaven? There will be animals in heaven and dogs are animals. The Bible says much about horses and birds being in heaven. A symbol of a white dove represents Jesus and the Holy Spirit, white is for purity.
When God, instructed Noah to build the ark He told him to take every living creature (animals) into the ark 2 by 2. Do you think God would have Noah go through all that trouble if He did not value them? Or would He have instructed Adam to name all the animals? I think not! Does a tree have a soul or do bodies of water have souls what about flowers? All these things will be in heaven you can be sure of it.
When Jesus comes back to earth, He will be riding on a white horse with thousands of His saints also riding on white horses to usher in the New Kingdom. Whatever God created before the foundation of the world will be in the New Kingdom to come. So do animals go to heaven when they die? You bet they do!
