There are no Bible verses that suggest pets will be raptured. There is a reference or two to animals though. Specifically, horses.

Rapture is POST tribulation according to Jesus himself who said in Matthew 24, AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days shall the sun be darkened……..and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven.
Believe Jesus,>>>>>>>. AFTER the tribulation = POST
NO where in the New Testament can anyone find two second comings. There is only one return of Christ, the Day of the Lord, the rapture, the end of the world. Jesus, Paul, nor Peter taught two returns, only one.
People are misinterpreting revelations vision. Jesus saying I will keep you from the hour of trial does NOT mean rapture. It means he will keep and protect us.

Thank you for your comment. I’m always interested in hearing biblically supported arguments in the comments of this website which refute the preponderance of evidence which describes Jesus coming for his church, aka his bride, before the Tribulation and before his Second Coming at the end of the Tribulation. More often than not I’m deeply disappointed in these petite disputes. Your assertion that the Rapture is post-trib needs to be backed up by at least one legitimate claim, please try harder. Nobody who understands and accepts the Pre-tribulation timing of the Rapture seriously believes that there are two second comings, so that is a false argument. In Matthew 24, Jesus was speaking to the Jews, not the Church, and the prophecies pertain to what the remnant of Jews will experience during the Tribulation. The Church did not even exist yet. Remember, the Church came into being at Pentecost, after Jesus’s death and resurrection. So read Matthew 24 again with this point-of-view in mind.
Also, I doubt you would intentionally call Jesus a liar, but that is precisely what the post-trib argument suggests. What do you think Jesus meant when he said in
“My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
When you read this verse try putting a little more emphasis on the words “I will come back and take you to be with me”. The word picture here is Jesus taking those who believe in him, that is his Church, taking them away to a specific place…not in a yo-yo rapture where they are taken up only to instantly join Jesus in his Second Coming. Think about it.

I see… are these your own conclusions that you’ve come to after reading the entire Bible many times and countless hours of study? Or are these the teachings of a ‘prophet’ from some random website you stumbled upon? Because I have to say, it all sounds so familiar. I’ve grown weary of proving the same arguments false time and time again, so I’ll just try to point you in the right direction and hope you find your way to the Truth. There are different people groups, right? Can we agree on that? Jews and Gentiles to start with. There are also Believers and Unbelievers…the Church, Jews, and ‘people of the world’. There are Saints and then there are Tribulation Saints. The Saints, the Church, and the Bride of Christ are all different terms for the same group of people. Everybody who invests the smallest effort into actually studying the Pretribulation Rapture knows that nobody says it’s a ‘Second Coming’ for one very obvious reason, Jesus doesn’t come down to Earth for the Rapture, He calls from above to meet him in the air by commanding His believers to “come up here”. The Bible can not be understood very well if the reader does not know which people group Jesus or the Apostles are speaking to…try starting there.
