Many Christian do not believe that animals go to Heaven. For many, many years I was one of them. I had always hoped that animals would be in heaven but not until one day while reading the Book of Romans did I find the part of the answer when I came to chapter 8, verses 18-23, in the Living Bible. In those verses I found new meaning concerning animals and God’s eternal promise to them. Not being sure I had fully understood the meaning of the verses; I read them in the King James Version. My understanding of the meaning of the scriptures remained the same. Then I thought, if animals truly are found in Heaven, the Book of Genesis should give some more indication of God’s plan for all his creatures from the beginning of creation. In fact I found there that God included the animals in his eternal covenant with Noah. Each of the seven times God spoke of his covenant with Noah, he included the animals.
By then my confidence of seeing my pets in heaven was growing stronger. I thought that if all animals will be in Heaven, then surely the Apostle John, in his vision of Heaven and the eternal promise God has given us will also indicate that animals will be in Heaven. Sure enough, Revelation 5:8-13 says all creatures recognize Jesus as the Savior of the world and they praise God right along with redeemed men.
From that point on, I asked for Holy Spirit guidance to indicate three places in the Bible concerning: Do animals have a soul and spirit? Are they sinful or sinless? Do animals have wisdom and insight? I found the answers to each question restated in many Books of the Bible, both in the Old and New Testaments. An added surprise was Scripture stating that animals praise and recognize God as their Creator and Provider.
“Will I See Fido in Heaven?” is from God and of God. I am humbly grateful that I am allowed to be a vessel through which God brings the good news about the creatures He has made and will have throughout eternity and share the sacrifice Jesus made for each of us as well.
I pray you will have joy and peace through the Word of God concerning for your pets eternal destination as well as that of yourself as you read “Will I See Fido in Heaven?’

'The heart that is loved never forgets.' These moving words mark the gravesite of a stranger's pet, situated close to the resting place of our beloved cockapoos Cuddles and Flip-Flop. Cuddles and Flip filled our hearts with love during the all-too-short sixteen years of their lives. Not a day passes that we don't think about them, sometimes with sadness, sometimes happily recalling the memories we hold dear. If you share the hope, as I do, that God has a special place in His kingdom for these creatures that hold such a special place in our hearts, please read Mary Buddemeyer-Porter's book 'Will I See Fido in Heaven?' If you have lost a pet, your hope will be transformed into an assurance as God ministers to your grief. Throughout this wonderful ninety-two page book Mrs. Buddemeyer-Porter has skillfully intermixed relevant Bible passages with endearing short stories about horses, dogs, crows, and skunks. The author has written intelligently and addresses the question forming the title of her book: 'Will I See Fido in Heaven?' The scripture verses give us the very real hope-the promise-that at death these gentle, loving creatures we call our pets enter into God's loving presence and care, and will abide with Him forever.
We lost our pet within the last year. This book was very helpful in confirming my own belief that animals go to heaven. I would recommend it, as well as 'There Is Eternal Life For Animals.'
I was relieved, and elated, when I learned that animals going to Heaven when they die was much more than a heartwarming dream of mine, but a definite fact, as proven by the scriptures in the bible. I have since learned that Mary Buddemeyer-Porter is considered throughout the world to be the leading authority on the immortality of animals. After fourteen years of indepth research into the subject of the immortality of animals, their souls and spirits, Porter has qualified herself as the expert in this field. I cannot wait to read her next books on this subject!
