I'm afraid a 3 gallon is just too small for tank mates... if your heart is set on having a few more fish with your betta I would upgrade into at least a 10 gallon.

Momma to three male bettas, two cats, and a dog!

Three gallons is to small for many tankmates... You could do ghost shrimp I suppose though.

Otherwise you need a larger tank.

Yeah, not the sort of fish you want betta with, other aggressive fish would rip the tail apart.
