After witnessing this miserable life, she realized that some fates truly are worse than death.
"No-kill" shelters and "no-kill" rescue groups often find themselves filled to capacity, which means that they must turn animals away. These animals will still face untimely deaths—just not at these facilities. In the best case scenario, they will be taken to another facility that does euthanize animals. Some will be dumped by the roadside to die a far more gruesome and horrible death than an injection of sodium pentobarbital would provide. Although it is true that "no-kill" shelters do not kill animals, this doesn't mean that animals are saved. There simply aren't enough good homes—or even enough cages—for them all.

PETA >> Animal Rights Uncompromised: Feral Cats (http://www.peta.org/campaigns/ar-feralcats.asp)
PETA's experiences with trap-alter-and-release (abandon) programs and "managed" feral cat colonies have led us to believe that these programs are not usually in cats' best interests. We have seen firsthand—and we receive countless similar reports—that cats suffer and die gruesome deaths because they are abandoned to fend for themselves outdoors. Many were in "managed" colonies, which usually means that they were fed. Having witnessed the painful deaths of countless feral cats instead of seeing them drift quietly "to sleep" in their old age, we cannot in good conscience advocate trapping, altering, and releasing as a humane way to deal with overpopulation and homelessness.
