In a lot of Christian circles, Rapture is a comforting word. To those unfamiliar with the concept of Rapture, it is an event where many who call themselves Christians, believe that Jesus will come back for his followers and spirit the faithful away from the world to be with Him in Heaven. These true believers anticipate the day of His coming.

In the event of Rapture what happens to the pets of believers? I don’t believe there is scripture to support pet rapture. Are they doomed to wander the Apocalypse without the care of their Christian companions?

A group of compassionate souls have come to save the faithful from this painful predicament. For a modest fee of $110.00, if the Rapture happens within 10 years of contract signing, they will provide Rapture Pet Rescue! $15.00 each to add an additional pets. And why are these rescuers so sure they won’t be raptured? They are a group of enterprising Athiests who are willing to help, for a fee. I found a website that explains it all. For all of you non-believers, here is the link. Eternal Earthbound Pets

Several observations. If you are seriously preparing for the Rapture, here is one additional thing to add to your checklist; find the pets good homes.

Also, I’m hoping these Rapture ready folks who show such concern for their pets are not involved with anything that involves heavy machinery. Forget what happens to your pets when you don’t come home. What about the Atheist who agreed to watch your pet, flying home, only to have the pilot of the plane raptured? I’m pretty sure that it will end badly for any non-believing passengers. I think it safe to say that in the short term your pet may fare better than the Atheist.

And what happens if a Rapture rescuer converts and joins the Rapture ready club? Is there a referral service for a new Atheist rapture rescuer? A refund policy? Rapture ready people may have a vested interest in making sure these kind Atheists are not converted, which will mean Hell for them down the road, but at least your pets will be taken care of. I’m not sure how that fits into an effective evangelism strategy.

What would Jesus do with His pets?
