Even with "negative" kittens, unless you find a strictly "no kill" shelter and keep them yourself until they are 8 weeks, they'd probably be put to sleep anyway without even being tested...and even a no-kill shelter will euthanize the positives.
I know it sounds sad to terminate but unless you will keep them yourself...the one thing sadder than the idea of termination is if you go to your local AS/AC agency and see all of the sweet, friendly, beautiful Mom & full litters of kittens who are being put to sleep--positive or negative.
