Audra Farrell, Community Cares supervisor for the San Francisco SPCA, explains how the San Francisco SPCA's Mama from the Streets program works. The program got started because people were bringing newborns and young kittens under 6 weeks of age to animal care facilities when those facilities were limited in resources for these kittens. 

Mama from the Streets will try and also trap the feral mother cat along with her kittens, bring them all in to be spayed or netuered, return the mother cat to where she was found, and then adopt out the kittens.
