I have some quasi feral cats and no one will take them. I prefer a no kill shelter but no one wants them... sad... anyways, if I go the route which one is prefered over the other? Humane society or county animal control? I really do not want them euthanised, and TNR won't work either. I feel bad for these guys... shit this sucks! I may look into tnr some more, though I am getting sick of feeding them... and cleaning up shit...

Take them to animal control.
They Should be euthanized.
Feral cats are useless eaters.
They can never become pets. So why waste the time, space and money of a no-kill shelter when they could better spend their resources and animals that can be adopted?

Brass tacks. Do some research, find out how they euthanize their animals. Many "animal control" facilities still use gassing, where most humane societies use much more humane injection/euthanasia solution.

There are organisations out there who will come out and trap all the animals, spay and neuter them, and then rerelease them as long as someone agrees to put out food and water for them, but you mentioned TNR won't work (why not?) however...sometimes they'll offer other solutions or help. Alley Cat Advocates in KY, Alley Cat Guardians in California ( both have websites, might want to look them up or call and ask them what to do as they've surely dealt with similiar situations before) are two examples of programs for stray and feral cats. Many other states have similiar programs under various names.

To the person saying that feral cats cannot be tamed, YES, YES they can. It just takes time. It sounds like the cats the OP is dealing with aren't feral, they had a home but don't anymore, these cats act wild but often once they're captured they're easily brought back up to housecat speed.

Some shelters have extensive volunteer networks and people who are willing to take in cats like this in order to help them adjust and calm down. Some shelters don't.
