Why does a charge from Takeyourpet.com appear on my account?

A charge appears as you either created a new paid membership to Takeyourpet.com or your existing paid membership was chosen by you to automatically renew at the time of signup and it did so without having been previously canceled by you. If you believe that a charge was applied to your account in error, contact us providing us with the email address your account is under (if other than the one you are writing from) as well as the date of charge and the last four digits of the card number and we'll look into it for you.
