Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

The general Divine rule of nature is that only human being and Jinnat will be admitted in Heaven as a compensation of their good deeds. All animals will be ruined as a Command of Allah. However as per religious Book, there is good news for few particular animals which will be allowed to enter into Heaven an account of their virtues and companionship of the virtuous persons. In which dog of Ashab-e-Kahaf, ram of Hadhrat Ismail, camel of Hadhrat Saleh, donkey of Hadhrat Uzair and Burraq of Hadhrat Muhammed (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) are mentioned.
(ref: Rooh-ul-Ma'ani vol.2, page 261)

The Animals and Birds of Paradise.

The kinds of birds and animals that exist in Paradise are known only to Allaah. He Ta'ala told us that among the people of Paradise will be:

"..and the flesh of fowls any that they may desire" [56:21]

At-Tirmidhi reports from Anas that the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was asked, "What is al-Kawthar?" He said, that Allaah has given me... and in it are birds with necks like the necks of camels". 'Umar said, These bliss". The Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "Those who eat them will be more blissful"". [Mishkaat al Masabih)

Al-Haakim and Abu Na'eem reported from Ibn Mas'oud that "a man brought a haltered she-camel and said, "O Allaah, this she-camel is for the sake of Allaah". He said, "You will have seven hundred haltered she-camel in Paradise" [Silsilat as-Saheehah, 2/228 no. 634; a similar report is narrated by Muslim, Mishkaat al Masabih)

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
