We're being forced to move!

UPDATE:  We guessed way too low for moving expenses, so we are asking for more to cover security and pet deposit, application fees, and movers.  Movers are necessary because Brian and I are no longer able to do the lifting and carrying necessary in a move. 
Yesterday, August 24, 2017, my husband and I were informed that our landlord is refusing to renew our lease.  The reason given?  "It states in the lease that you signed that we have the option to not renew your lease and we are exercising that option."  Can you imagine being told to leave your home just because they have the power to do so?!  We have until October 31st to be completely out of our home...after 20 years of living in the same complex.  
I am currently unemployed, though waiting on a background check to report positively so I can start training for a job. But we have no savings, and we're living off my husband's income.  We have just enough to pay rent OR move, but not both.  This is where you come in.
We are asking for your generous help to get us and our two furbabies ( 17 year old, Zhing.  14 year old, Ricky.  Loving cats we've had all their lives.) moved into a new home.  We are asking for just what we think will cover moving expenses.  We've never used this forum before, and wish we didn't need to now.  Please help us with as much as you can give.  Thank you, so much, for your help and understanding through this challenging time.
