Can't you call the ASPCA or Social Services or someone to report places like that?
They only care about fluffy animals, lol.

There is a fish store where I live where the only bettas they have are rescued ones that she has nursed back to health, and they are all in 10 gallons. :)
She also does it for other fish too.

Bettas - Giovanni (HM), Burly (HMPK Giant), Potato (EEHM), Vesper (HMPK).

oh, that's neat! :3 i know a girl who works at a Petco, who takes the ones who have been there a long while home, gets them better if they need it, and adopts them out. :3 i'm planning on adopting a MG DTHMPK boy she rescued. hopefully, he didn't get the evil columaris a VT in a neighboring tank did. x-X she places some of the ones who have been there a while in the tanks with peaceful fishies. :3

there's a betta rescue in TN already, they joined here! Better Betta Rescue! they're sweet people, and rescue the most amazing bettas from stores, and often get bettas that owners don't want anymore.

Well, if I ever had to get rid of my Bettas. I would rather give them to a place like that then just give them to any careless stranger on Craigslist. :)
I rescued a Betta once, nursed it back to health, and then rehomed it. Though, it took alot of time and effort to find the right owners.

just got back from Petco. o3o i was happy. the cups are large, not as big as walmarts/Petsmarts, but way bigger than my lps'. the bettas were active, healthy, and i only saw one thin fella, and one dead fella. i informed the guy there doing the build-a-betta thing, and he took care of the dead fella.
