I'm looking for some sort of idea of what I can do because I love having frogs out my yard and I've got hundreds of tadpoles and pollywogs that are in my pond right now. I'm afraid of draining and cleaning the water. I don't want to hurt them but the water is getting really really dirty. I'm not sure if there's anything I can do I'd appreciate any ideas.

Define dirty. Some consider lots of algae dirty but not necessarily bad and food for the tadpoles. No filter on the pond?

Tadpoles can live in a little bit of stagnate water. Something like plant saucers. Net them and place them somewhere else while you deal with the pond water and return them when you are done.
