“Does every creature have a soul? Surely they do; for everything God has touched will live forever.” –St. Francis of Assisi
Will your pet who passed away before you meet you in the afterlife?
Many near death experiencers have described their pets greeting them in the afterlife, especially those who had a strong bond with their pet or fur baby. Many people say if there is an afterlife and their pets are not there, then it wouldn’t be much of a heaven or afterlife.
Jonathan G Sees All His Former Pets During NDE
According to a personal account of an NDE by Jonathan G who was in the hospital for chest pains, pets do greet people in the afterlife. He states of his NDE, “I then became distracted by figures to my right which were all my former pets (dogs and cats that had died) climbing over each other to get to me, they gave me the impression of me just getting home for a long trip as they seemed very excited to see me.”

NDE and Shared Death Experience with Pet Dog
After her heart stops for over four minutes during a heart attack, Jan talks about her deceased dog Maggie greeting her and guiding her to other planes of existence. Jan’s experience reveals that it’s not just people beings that help those who are passing from this life to the next. Her experience also shows that pets are spirit guides too.
What’s exceptional about Jan’s near death experience is that her husband shared her experience too. Recent research has shown that many people who are not sick share the death experience with their loved ones. Raymond Moody who introduced the near death experience to many in his book Life After Life, also provides evidence of people who have shared the experiences of the dying in his book Glimpses of Eternity: An Investigation Into Shared Death Experiences.
