What to do with fish I cant keep?

I have three goldfish, and when I move at the end of april im not going to have room for them :( What do you do in these situations? Will an LFS take them?

I'd post an ad on craigslist before I went to a LFS. Some of them will destroy any fish that is returned to them for fear of spreading disease to their stock.

If they are common goldfish ask to see a picture of their pond before you give them the fish. People will say anything to get something free.

And to some people a 'pond' can be a 30 gallon tub out in their backyard.
