Memorial and veterinary fund

This is a little more complicated than simple some veterinary fundraising.

The last 2 months have been intensely stressful for us; we've suffered the stillbirth of triplets, the cost of a memorial for them, a leaking roof, a failed water heater, replaced tires after a near blowout, the diagnosis of focal seizures in my wife's service dog, the adoption of an abandoned kitten, and my elderly cat now needs dental surgery.

I'm away from work, expressly for a mental health leave for the stillbirth, and while I am receiving unemployment, it's just barely enough for the bills and essential pet needs, and we're relying on the grocery overstocking we did during the pregnancy. 

We had accumulated some savings in preparation for the babies' births, but had not planned on funeral expenses, and because of the pregnancy and it's complications, my wife was entirely unable to work from very early on.

I'm due to return to work for late August/early September (upon doctor's clearance), but we're really struggling, and our options are very limited.

Edit - Some have mentioned that the wording is ambiguous, and makes it seem as though it's for a memorial for our senior cat, and that is not the case; it is to assist with the memorial services and interment of our stillborn triplets, and well as to assist us with the other unexpected costs that have occurred since the start of May, as detailed above.

Edit (Aug 17, 2019) - Our washing machine is starting to go. If it weren't for bad luck, we'd clearly have none.
