SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Zoo Miami will soon build a new animal hospital after the zoo’s foundation received a grant.

The zoo received the $100,000 grant from the state, Thursday.

The additions and renovations will be done in three different phases, which will include an animal holding area, a treatment wing and an expansion of labs and offices, zoo officials said.

Zoo Miami provides year-round preventative and urgent care for nearly 3,500 animals, and many of them are endangered.
