There comes the trolling atheist aaaaaaand we have another debate that is not worth reading and another bad example for how ignorance should not be answered with ignorance. I am so proud right now.

Its pretty much a combination of what 1Credo and moneystacker said:

You have definite descriptions of heaven that includes animals but the bible never explicitly says that these are the souls of animals that died. Because animals have no soul in the way humans have. Other than humans, animals can't be good or bad, they can't sin. So they cannot go hell. But in the same breath they can't be resurrected into heaven. If you have no choices you have no options.

It's pretty much irrelevant for the bible to resolve that open question. It's not problematic topic. Considering what we know now about the different stages of intelligence that animals can have, we start to wonder, of course. But Catholics will just wait till our lovely new pope puts on his authority-hat and declares animals go to haven and resolves what's missing in the bible.

The common teaching is that animals do not have souls as humans do.

From what I am aware of the bible doesn't talk about where animals go when they die. All it says is that animals are there to provide for us and eat. Could be a verse hidden somewhere I am sure it would be in one of the lesser read books of the bible though because that is not something that is considered important throughout the bible.
