What People Don’t Know About Losing A Pet

In life we lose a few pets and it is very tough to get over.


Anyone who loses a pet knows how difficult it can be. People comfort you, but the grief doesn’t go away. What can you do other than talk to a grief counselor and find ways to manage your grief? I took a different route.

I interviewed many priests and ministers before I published my managing fear book. I also did much research about dying since many people are afraid of death.

Based on my research and interviews over the years, I personally believe with great certainty that if I believe in God and go to Heaven I will see my beloved pets along with my loved ones.

Many people will say that animals do not go to heaven. Here are some reasons why I disagree.

As Christians we are taught God is all-powerful and can do anything he wants and that God controls Heaven and Earth. I believe that  God has the power to have a special place in heaven for all of his animals he created, including our pets. People on Earth call it “Rainbow Bridge”. Regardless of the name, I believe that God has the sole authority to create such a place regardless what people may think.

The Bible talks about all the different animals and creatures He created on Earth.
Finally, I believe that God is all loving and love of animals is important. Why would God not have a place in heaven for all of God’s loving creatures?

I read the Bible and I talked to many people regarding this subject for a long time. Based on all of this research, I believe there is great certainty that our pets will be there when we die.  The Bible talks about seeing our loved ones when we die, so why not our pets?

I decided I will put my faith and trust In God and that we will eventually reunite with our loved ones and pets. Knowing and understanding this fact goes a long way in helping to deal with your grief of losing a pet. Although animals allegedly don’t have souls, there is nothing stopping God from creating a place in heaven for our beloved pets with a click of his finger.  Put your faith in God and remember that nothing is impossible.
