SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - It's big news that'll make animal lovers and Trekkies rejoice. An A-list celebrity is signing his name to a massive project for an East Texas animal refuge.

In Brian Werner's tiger sanctuary, big plans are in the works.

Animal lover and actor William Shatner recently endorsed Werner's capital campaign for Tiger Creek.

It's an eight million dollar project that's about 20% complete. Werner says Shatner's support is perhaps the greatest compliment.

Shatner has been donating to the cause since 2006.

Werner says his signature will help attract new donors, increasing the quality of life for about 45 big cats that call East Texas home.
