Mother’s Day is around the corner and some of the AnimalNetwork websites are trying to get into the spirit of celebrating mothers and pets.

DogChannel, CatChannel and BirdChannel are asking moms to share photos of them with their dogs, cats or parrots for special Mother’s Day photo galleries. If you’d like to participate you can click on these links to upload your photos of you and your dogs, cats or birds.

ReptileChannel is also celebrating with their “Mom Vs. Herps!” story contest. The editors are asking for reptile owners to submit funny stories of a time that their moms have encountered the family reptile. If you have a great story you can submit it at ReptileChannel.com.
