Surrender of downed Doxie

I am trying to find help for my mini Doxie.  Marley is suffering from disc problems that have caused her to loose use of her hind legs, and at this time I am unable to afford the treatment that she requires.  I work part time, and I have had to move back to my parent's home, and I do not want to have to put my sweet girl to sleep, so I am desperate to find her help.  
She will be five in January.  I got her from a friend that rescued her, and thought I would want another Doxie because I had a full size one.  I didn't have the heart to send her back, so I kept her.
She has been healthy until two weeks ago, when she started to display symptoms.  I have been treating her with Metacam and pain pills, but this is not enough.
She is a small female, approx 9.5 lbs., gets along well with other dogs and cats, and loves people.  I am hoping you can help her I feel terrible that I cannot but financially it is impossible for me to at this time.
