Whenever I rescue a betta the first song that I spontaneously burst into is "Born Free" . . . it's kind of awkward.
But yeah, I do feel bad. If there's one that I think I can save I'll go for it. That's how I've gotten most of mine. They're either pathetic looking - emaciated, torn fins, pale/lethargic - or just okay, or the last one on the shelf, or marked down because they were sick. I can find the saddest looking VT and take him home. I did that yesterday . . . brought home a tiny pale little thing and he's coloured up into a pink dalmatian and has a bubblenest going on :)
