Niki Behrikis Shanahan adopted her first
pet, Pete, the cat that was the inspiration
for the book “There Is Eternal Life For
Animals.”  Pete was 8 years old when the
Shanahans adopted him from a neighbor
and 21 years old when he passed away.  
Pete really chose them, as many animals
do, by meowing outside the door of their
condominium to let him in.  They did let
him in, and it was one of the best things
they ever did!  They would invite him in
and he would visit regularly until the
bond was great between them.
Then they adopted him from their
neighbor.  When Pete was 18 years old,
and the only pet in the house for 10
years, he warmly accepted a new feral
cat, Luke, as his brother.   Luke was one
of several stray cats that Niki fed and
looked after on a regular basis.  Then the
Shanahans moved to another
neighborhood where they have seen very
few outdoor cats.  However, Joey showed
up looking scruffy and in need of a home
a little before Pete passed away. They
took him in just after Pete went home to

This website was established in 2003 and
is dedicated to animals and pets.  It
includes a focus on animal afterlife from a
Christian perspective.  You’ll find that it
revolves around:

1.  Pets and Animals
2.  People Who Love Animals
3.  Biblical Appreciation

It is a support for pet owners and animal
lovers in everyday life, as well as during
the time when we have to let go of our
beloved companions until we are united
again in Heaven.  Although there is
tremendous grief and pain at the loss of
our beloved animal companions, we also
remember that God has provided the gift
of eternal life for all the animals.  All of
God’s children can look forward to being
reunited with their animal companions
again someday.  When that wonderful
day arrives, we know that it will never,
never end!  The Bible says that when we
are absent from the body, we are
present with the Lord. (II Corinthians,
Ch. 5)  Although we feel the pain when a
loved one departs, it is far from the end.  
In fact, it is the beginning of a beautiful
life of eternity with God the way He
originally planned it.  Jesus said, “in My
Father’s House are many mansions, if it
were not so I would have told you.  I go
to prepare a place for you and will come
back again, that where I am you may be
there also.” (Paraphrase John 14:1-4)

At you’ll find articles,
stories, news, health and wellness,
photos, and many resources.  Prayer
requests for sick animals and for pet
parents who have lost a beloved animal
companion may be submitted.  There is a
Store with links to and
other retailers for selected related items.  
If you love animals and God, this may
become one of your favorite websites!
