|A local rescue group might be able to arrange a temporary foster for your dogs if needed. I work with the Humane Society for my county and while we primarily pull shelter dogs to foster for adoption, we occasionally arrange foster homes for folks who can't afford boarding during a hospitalization, or during other tough times.
We are able to do this because we have volunteers who are happy to take in an animal, but they aren't able to commit to all the extra work that fostering a shelter pull entails - repeated trips to the vet for vaccines and treatment, housetraining and behavioral issues, taking the dog to adoption events each weekend. Rescue fostering is a LOT of work, but petsitting for a few months is less involved.
It might be worth checking with a few groups in your area to see if they can help.
