|Bless you for taking her in! Adult ferals can be pretty self-sufficient, but kittens on their own without mama can't survive.
If you can't go get cat litter, rip up some newspaper and put it in a shallow pan for her. Depending on how young she is, you might need to put her in it about fifteen minutes after each meal. If she's older, you might only need to put her in it once or twice.
What are you feeding her? Dog food is obviously far better than not eating, and if it's what you've got use it. Chicken would be better, if you have it--a pure meat diet is closer to what she needs than dog food. Is there a convenience store where you might be able to pick up a few cans of food and a small bag of litter?
If you can't find her owner, and assuming you don't want another pet right now, rather than call a shelter, see if you can locate a cat rescue group. If you can get her into a rescue, she'll be safe, get spayed and find a home. Too many shelters, even ones that are effectively No Kill for dogs, kill a large percentage of the cats that come in.
