|Even if the shelters and rescues in your area aren't taking kittens right now, they still might be able to offer suggestions. In my area, there are a couple of "unofficial" rescues, basically just cat-loving people, who will find homes for cats if you foster the cat until they can find a permanent home. Maybe there is something similar where you live, and a shelter might give you some ideas.
I hate to disagree with awesome Tigger, but I would not recommend that you put a "free kitten" ad anywhere. I believe you should charge at least a nominal amount, even $5 or $10, to discourage the mean people who will do mean things to free kittens. I know you're joking about the kitten being prey for your pup, but there are some twists out there that will use kittens for just such a purpose. A lady at our local rescue told me some awful stories about things she's seen happen to free kittens, and she's the one who told me it's always better to charge a small amount when rehoming to a stranger.
I really hope things work out so that you can keep him. He's a cutie!
