In my city's case, our local shelter will never turn away a surrendered animal, and we don't euthanize adoptable for space. Kittens are highly adoptable and there are many fosters willing to take them in.
You did the right thing Dicesmom. Know your limits - and especially know the limits and respect the wishes of those that pay the rent, provide the resources, or have to live with them also. Contact your local city shelter and see what their policy is for situations like this. That way the next time someone calls trying to get you to take in unwanted animals you will have a viable POC with information that is tangible.
