PEDIGREE Foundation, Country Duo Partner for Canine Adoption Month

Sister country music duo Presley & Taylor have recorded their touching new single for the first time “Choose Me” a few years ago and kept it in his back pocket at just the right time. After seeing a recent news report about an organization relocating 19 dogs and cats from a Baton Rouge shelter in the path of Hurricane Ida, they knew the time had come. Presley and Taylor have asked their record label, White Mustang Records, to adjust their release schedule to accommodate the release of “Choose Me” in time for Dog Adoption Month in October.

“We hung onto ‘Choose Me,’ because we loved the song,” Presley and Taylor said jointly. “Pet adoption is close to our hearts and seeing the news has really touched us. We hope this song inspires people to adopt a pet from a local shelter and give a dog or a cat the love it deserves.

The unique cover features Presley & Taylor’s very own rescue dog, Rocky. The cuddly King Charles mix was first rescued by their grandmother in Connecticut. After his passing, the girls brought Rocky to live with them in Nashville.

Coinciding with the release of the single, Presley & Taylor are also thrilled to announce that they have decided to support the PEDIGREE Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Franklin, Tennessee, with proceeds from streaming and downloads of “Choose Me” for the benefit of the organization. Proceeds from the single will support the PEDIGREE Foundation’s annual grant program, which supports rescues and shelters across the country. Presley & Taylor will serve as ambassadors for the PEDIGREE Foundation encouraging their fans to adopt, volunteer or donate to help end pet homelessness.

The need to help rescues and shelters across the country has increased due to the pandemic and recent emergencies, such as Hurricane Ida and the wildfires in California and surrounding states that have displaced many animals in need of a loving home. The PEDIGREE Foundation works tirelessly to end pet homelessness and help dogs get the loving homes they deserve.

“The PEDIGREE Foundation does a great job of raising awareness and identifying specific disaster needs to ensure resources go where they are needed most,” Presley & Taylor said. “This relationship aligns perfectly with the goals we have for this song and helps raise awareness for pet adoption, and we are very proud to support the PEDIGREE Foundation as ambassadors.”
