Are you close to a bigger city that may have a low cost spay/neuter program? You can google low cost s/n for your area and see what comes up. Some cities have places where you can get it done for $50. That's pretty easy to come up with.
Is there some reason the kitten can't be a 100% indoor cat? It is a misnomer that cats are not happy indoors. There is no reason for them to be outdoors and it is much safer for them inside. They don't have to deal with all the issues of fighting with other cats, wildlife, cars, bad weather, getting lost, etc..... They really are quite content indoors. Especially once they are fixed.
