You can start by seeing if any of your local animal shelters will do this for you.
If not then here are some groups that might help you afford the vet bills. I highlighted the last one as it is specifically for people who may be losing their homes.American Animal Hospital Associationhttp://www.aahahelpingpets.org/" Through the AAHA Helping Pets Fund, veterinary care is possible for sick or injured pets even if they have been abandoned or if their owner is experiencing financial hardship."Angels 4 Animalshttp://www.angels4animals.org/"Our services range from financial aid to complete treatmentto those pets and pet owners in need."Care Credithttp://www.carecredit.com/A credit card company for health care, including veterinary care."With a comprehensive range of plan options, fortreatment or procedure fees from $1 to over $25,000, we offer a planand a low monthly payment to fit comfortably into almost everybudget." They have a zero interest program if you pay within a certain time frame and they list the vets who work with their product.God's Creatures Ministryhttp://www.all-creatures.org/gcm/help-cf.html"This fund helps pay for veterinarian bills for those who need help."Help-A-Pethttp://www.help-a-pet.org/home.html http://www.help-a-pet.org/"Our efforts focus on serving the elderly, the disabled, and theworking poor."IMOMhttp://www.imom.org/"We are dedicated to insure that nocompanion animal has to be euthanized simply because their caretakeris financially challenged."The Pet Fundhttp://thepetfund.com/"The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit association thatprovides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who needurgent veterinary care."United Animal Nationshttp://www.uan.org/lifeline/index.html"The m ission of LifeLine is to help homeless or recently rescuedanimals suffering from life-threatening conditions that requirespecific and immediate emergency veterinary care.

They also keep a list of local and national help resources herehttp://www.uan.org/index.cfm?navid=163
If you, or anyone you know, are facing foreclosure, here is a link to a new resource for you and your pets:http://nopawsleftbehind.org/paws/
Out of all the links, there is only one that can potentialy help. The rest have long waiting lists, or I don't mmet the criteria for help or it takes too long. The foreclosure one is putting my animals in a shelter. I pray i don't have to do that. Is there anything I can give him to do it myself?
The only legal, safe or humane way to euthanize at home is by using a bullet which is very difficult for most owners to even think about.
The mix of meds for euthanasia used by a vet or shelter is very carefully made to first put the animal to sleep and then stop the heart. Medications you might try at home could cause convulsions or pain and suffering, and might not do more than just damage the dog so there really isn't a simple home solution to this. If you think about it you will understand that anything that might kill a dog peacefully might also kill a human so the meds are very carefully controlled.
