Do Animals Have Souls?


Leviticus 17:11 “For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.”

Though, this passage does not necessarily indicate that animals have souls, but it is inferred that God gave them life. So, is it harmful , or violative of biblical tenets, to believe your pets will be with you in heaven?
