Sparta TNR

Helping Our Cat Community

Spay and Neutering

Our primary focus is spay/neuter of outdoor cats (community, feral, barn). Our cost for male (neuter) or female (spay) is a minimum donation of $45.00 per cat. For larger groups of cats, we will work with you to make cost affordable.

Adopting Those Who Need Homes

As resources allow, we remove kittens and some friendly cats from the streets and adopt them out, providing them a better life.

Run by Volunteers

We are primarily volunteer based, our vet techs (for surgery days) and autoclave person are the only volunteers that receive a small compensation for what they do. The rest of our team is 100% volunteer based and receive no pay.


About Sparta TNR

Our program started spring of 2015 when one of our program founders noticed a colony of cats feeding out of a dumpster in the neighborhood. She connected with another program founder that had been doing TNR randomly on her own over the years. A bake sale was held at the local IGA along with a rummage sale to raise money for spay and neuter costs. That first summer 8 adult females and 6 adult male cats were fixed. In addition, 7 kittens were adopted. The need continued so we continued. Little did we know back then that we would be where we are today!

Since 2015 we have spayed/neutered over 1100 cats and adopted out 450 kittens/cats. In 2022 alone we spayed/neutered 160 cats, 87 females and 73 male and adopted out 52 kittens. Each year the program grows and each year we have gained wonderful volunteers and supporters. In summer of 2021 we became an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our mission is spay/neuter of outdoor cats to stabilize outdoor cat populations and prevent kitten/cat suffering. We provide high quality spay/neuter at a reduced cost. We make up the cost by fundraisers and private donations. We receive no city, county or state funding. Now being a 501(c)(3) we will be looking further into grants for TNR. We have proven that TNR (trap-neuter-release) does work. We have been able to stabilize outdoor cat colonies and prevent kitten/cat suffering through TNR. We have been able to stop distemper (panleukopenia) in a colony and care for sick/injured outdoor cats. We have been able to remove kittens and some friendly adult cats off the streets to give them a better life.

We know there is still a great need out there and hopefully each year we can help lessen that need. All of this happens because of YOU… the volunteers, the supporters, the donors! Thank you.

Any donations help us take care care of more cats in need. You can use PayPal via the button above or contacts us for other methods.

Good peeps! Doing an awesome job in community trying to get cat population under control and find good homes for the kitties. Devoted and dedicated to humane animal control.

Sparta TNR was great to work with and answered all my questions with the adoption of my Ginger! When they found Ginger, she was pregnant and deaf. After her kittens were adopted, they took great care of her for the year until I found her.
