Quotes on Animals

Animals do have spirits and . . . through the redemption made by our Savior they will come forth in the resurrection to enjoy the blessing of immortal life.  The Bible as it has come to us through numerous translations and copies does not contain the information concerning the immortality of the animal world in the clearness which, without any doubt, it was invested with the pure inspiration of the revelations of the Lord.  However, there are some passages which still remain bearing witness to the eternal nature of the animal world. — President Joseph Fielding Smith, Answers to Gospel Questions 2:48
