God loves animals, otherwise he wouldn't have filled the earth with them. He created animals before he even created humanity! Adam's first job was naming the animals.
It is well documented, my husband died. He was dead and went to heaven. When he says heaven is full of loved companion animals, I believe him.
When the Bible tells me there will be no more pain or sorrow, I believe it.
