The West Auckland Animal Shelter is looking after several cats and dogs left behind by people caught in the tornado on Thursday.

Five dogs and two cats have been picked up by Auckland Council.

The council says animal welfare personnel are helping owners find missing animals they were not able to take with them when they were evacuated.

Owners can also log their missing pets with the council.
