If you find kittens outside, bringing them to a local shelter is not always the best option. It’s natural to want to scoop them up, but unless they’re sick, injured, or in danger, please leave them there and wait for their mama to return. Their best chance of survival is with their mom. 

Then, plan to return at a later date and have the whole family spayed and neutered. Trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) is the most humane method of preventing cats and kittens from entering the shelter system.
