Where can I find near San Diego for a Pet Rescue to give my cat to since I cant pay her doctor bills anymore.?

I have had my lovely cat now for 3 years. Im 22 years old and I got her because my dad passed away when I was 17 and wanted a Himalyan to help with my sorrow. After a year and a half, she became very ill and got glaucoma. She is now blind :(. After a few doctor visits she became sick again and now has kidney disease. Every 6 months I go to the doctor due to her not feeling well. She is constantly needing doctor visits. I never though this was going to happen but Im a student and pursuing an International Business Degree and wanting to specialize in green technology. I want to bring new technologies from Europe to America to make our country greener. I love my cat so much but I cant afford her doctor bills anymore. I dont want to put her asleep and trying to find an organization who can properly take care of her and adopt her to a nice family. She is a white flame point Himalyan and is 8 years old. She loves to give massages. She loves to cuddle. She is generally fine its just every 6 months she tends to feel ill and needs to go to the vet. Thanks i hope i find some places or aids to help me.
