Default 6 year old hedgie - euthanasia

I have a 6 year old hedgehog who is losing so many quills. I just noticed that she is losing more than 15 each time I hold her. She’s old and doesn’t do any of the things she used to enjoy doing. She’s lost all her teeth and I feed her mushy foods. She doesn’t run on her wheel anymore. She doesn’t eat mealworms. She just lays in her hut all day and sleeps. I called around 5 exotic vets and they want to do an exam on her even though I know she is suffering and needs to be put down. I cannot afford to put her down at the moment as I just graduated from college and I am struggling to find a job. I have no idea what to do in this situation. She’s always been healthy even when she lost her teeth but her health recently has declined so rapidly that I think the only option is to put her to sleep
