TV star William Shatner has sent a heartfelt letter to Louisiana Governor KATHLEEN BABINEAUX BLANCO, urging her to what she can to save the pets still struggling to survive in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The STAR TREK star has teamed up with animal activists at People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to make sure the politician doesn't forget man's best friends as relief workers continue to clean up New Orleans, Louisiana.

In the letter, Shatner asks Governor Blanco to use her power to provide the Louisiana National Guard with food and water for animals in the state who continue to die in the aftermath of Katrina.

He writes, "My heart goes out to you and your fellow Louisianans during this devastating chapter in your state's history. This is an urgent plea.

"People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has more than 850,000 members and supporters and, on their behalf, I respectfully request your immediate attention.

"Your beleaguered constituents deserve better than to have their animals left to die slowly in the wreckage of their battered state, and nonprofit agencies cannot be expected to bear alone the immense work and cost of saving Louisiana's animals!

"Governor, you have the power to provide the Louisiana National Guard with food and water for these dying animals and to order that agency to notify animal rescuers when it finds animals. Won't you please take this lifesaving action today?"
