As the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve, Stephanie Redding of Royal Palm Beach signed adoption papers at Loxahatchee’s Big Dog Ranch Rescue, becoming the first person in Palm Beach County to adopt a pet in the new year. The adoption event got a big boost when local resident and reporter Randi Kaye broadcast live from the shelter three times during CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live event, which was hosted by anchor Anderson Cooper and Bravo network host/producer Andy Cohen.
