Will there be animals in heaven?

Animals were intended for man's enjoyment and use, however, the Bible does not indicate that there is life after death for animals. It may be that God's purpose for animals is fulfilled on this earth, however, if animals would make us happier in heaven, surely there will be a place for them there.

In Isaiah 65:25, the Bible say "the wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. This verse describes the peace that will exist in God's future kingdom, but is not clear enough to conclude that animals will indeed exist in heaven.
