It may come as a shock to many that the "new" improved Toronto Humane Society (THS) is viewed by a leading defender of animals as a "Kill Shelter." This, after the celebrated 2009 "raid" by the OSPCA on the THS that resulted in new management and (presumably) greater care of animals.
PETA advertises itself as the largest animal rights organization in the world, with over three million members and supporters. PETA stages "rescue" operations of abused animals, and can serve a useful purpose, which it is exceedingly adept at publicizing. What PETA does not publicize, however, it euthanizes -- kills -- some 85% of the animals it rescues.
