Animal Safe Place in Need of Help

It takes alot for me to do this but we are at our last resort. My farm is a 3.5 acre run down farm that is a home to many rescue animals. Over the years it has been a safe place and home for more than 100 animals who have lived full healthy lives. I am a single woman and a teacher and have had some struggles paying the fees for the farm. The property state charges, house payment and feed bills have taken a toll.  I work 3 jobs and have been unable to get to that light at the end of the tunnel. Currently I have 10 dogs: Urlacher, Jazmin, Sasha, Ditka, Francis, Chewey, Eddie, Bella, Cody and Carrie. Recently we had some wild dogs get in and they broke Eddie's jaw and ripped off Jazmin's ear, both  racked up some hefty vet bills but both are fied and healthy. The dogs range from 3 years old to 15 and are all perfectly healthy with room to run and play and are loved dearly. Geronimo is a rescue horse who came to live with me when they were going to put him down and is a love, Angelo is a mini horse with a stifle that locks and was unwanted due to this issue. Sam is a donkey who needed a place to live and the two goats (Victor and Victoria) were saved from the neighbor's dinner plate. I also have three cats all of which have had chronic illnesses and have some vet bills but are otherwise very healthy and sweethearts. Re has a reoccurring eye issue, Tai has chronic allergies and Sweetness has gingivitis. All of the animals on the farm are  spayed or neutered, have all of their shots and are my children and they come first. The old double wide on the property is run down without heat or ac or hot water but this is of no concern to me. I am asking for help because I do not want them to be uprooted from the place they have grown up and are loved. I am 9000 away from owning the farm. I am behind on payments and to lose it to foreclosure at this time after so many years of hard work is breaking my heart. I have saved quite a bit but had to dip into it for vet bills. I am asking for any help to save this wonderful place. The future vision I have for it is to turn it into an animal sancuary officially for the lower Dona Ana County. Grants are out there but the property must be paid off before. I have always been a person who would give my shirt off my back for others and still do. Any money raised will be paid forward in the future once I am back on my feet and my loved ones are safe. I know everyone is having a tough time in different ways as I said this is a very last resort and takes a serious setting aside of pride to ask for help.  Thank you for any consideration into helping out  my darling fur babies. 100% of the money that comes in will go to the animals. I will be happy to share picures of them they are all beautiful. Thank you again!
