..and they told me Petco helped them clean the tank, and again I showed pictures of the same filth, and the fish in worse condition, and sent another e-mail to the director of services, showing the pix again, and letting her know how bettas were not supposed to be housed together, in cold water, with goldfish, and other non compatible species..so with that..

I knew no one knew what they were doing, and again I was not going to allow the bettas to die, and also I told them if whomsoever wants them back, fine I will Rehab them first, and let that person come to me, and I will get them thier fish back, --do you really think someone will come foward to claim these fish???????????
Claim the fish? Nope. You DID THE RIGHT THING!!! In my opinion anyway :) Keep up the good work!!! And keep the fish :) They deserve you!

I did read the thread and did not find any posting that stated she 1st asked the employee for the fish.
Stealing is stealing. Doesn't matter the value of the object. It is still against the law. In fact, the only time the value of the object matters is when it goes from a misdemeanor to a felony for grand theft.
well i highly doubt these people give a hoot about a few sickly fish in an algae covered cesspool... in my opinion. and yes she may have taken these fish but , honestly, Robin hood stole from the rich to give to the poor (fictional or not i dont know)and people loved him for it.... peoplewrote things about him, and admire him, i dont see the difference , and she stole to help these little souls. i dont think in Gods eyes, that she actually broke one of the 10 commandments, in fact if she went to jail, for 3 fish, that cost like 3.99$, i think the judge would laugh and let her go. if anything in Gods eyes, she risked alot for those few little helpless suffering souls, and thats admirable .

I was reading this hole thread, and what she did was a good things most people help dogs and cats, feed fish to there pets as it's a joke but really they are gods living creatures too. A fish isn't exactly a "object" it's biotic, means living. She did ask them and they said "Go ahead" they didn't care, and they LIED that Petco helped them, who knows what they teach the children there.

She did nothing wrong, even if you steal "Nail polish" no on really cares since that is a store, these people lied to her, she offered to help, they ABUSED and NEGLECTED there animals infront of kids and said "It's cleaned" that's BS and I think there just as quility of what you called "Stealing" The people don't even care for these fish, they just let you have them, if the judge were to have this case in court I am 100% her side would win and she would be let go, nor get arrested. Most people say "it's just a fish" that's an excuse that will get ANYONE out of this.

Anyways, love the fish, what you did was amazing.

What happened to the goldfish, angel fish, lobster. I really feel so bad for those 3 the lobster should be rehomed some place were they do not eat lobster and keeps them as pets, the angel fish should be moved to someone who really loves angel fish, and the gold fish well, I would keep that little guy and try my best to help him.

Anyways, god bless you are amazing.

Having said that, do not ever doubt the power of social media. Imagine this entire incident from start to finish in the news. Prosecution for theft of a very sick $3.99 Betta fish from a filthy, neglected tank that just happens to be located in a national charitable organization that has a Casue Statement of: "To strengthen the foundations of community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility."

Clearly, in that location, they are lacking on most every aspect of their "Cause".
In our "society" a fish is a fish.
The OP still would of been prosecuted should YMCA decided to press charges.
And if the OP DID ask permission why did she say she "stole" the fish. Stealing is stealing. Period.

I think you need to study law more.
Yes, if you steal nail polish you WILL be prosecuted if the store decides to do so. A fish is an object in the eyes of society and the law. Compare an abused fish to that of an abused dog. In court action will be taken for the dog, not the fish.

It is sad but true.
