    I have 2 dogs but to me my family and kids would come first so if it was a choice between keeping a roof over my head with the dogs or giving them away to a good home and keeping my house I would choose the later.

    5 large dogs in a lot to me and would not be replacing them if they died. How may animals is it reasonable to hold onto if you are not able to manage your finances without assistance? Ok for short term help but not long term.

    Five large dogs is a major hobby, and honestly, I think it is too much to expect a bank (effectively the State) to give you leeway to indulge this hobby. Time to start finding homes for three of them, I reckon.

    I think the OP should try to sell them. When they get a price they can look for a Korean cook-book online (or maybe a recipe that they can download for free) as five large dogs could feed a family for quite some time.
    Then there's you superfluous organs; god gave up two kidneys just for times like this. Be imaginative here; if you have children their spare organs can also provide a valuable income stream. Jonathan Swift had some good advice in this area.
