I thought you guys would like to see the results of my interview, so here's the link! -> http://abettafortheheart.tumblr.com/...co-interview-1
Tell me what you think and if you have any other ideas of what I should do! I'm planning on rescuing and rehabilitating a really sick betta to show the effects of Betta abuse how how every animal is affected. (The beautiful betta I rescued would have most likely died)
If you have any other ideas or tips, feel free to put them down!!! :)
Hello! Rescuing is very rewarding. A former rescuer myself, I know how terrible these stores treat them. I think it is very clever to proove how ignorrant some employees are. I'd say do that at multiple stores, and then bring your info together as a census, and then report your results. That way, you can create a more general observation that applies to all stores. I hope I am making sense, lol.
I saw a male betta at Wal-Mart with extreme fin rot, and Wal-Mart employees had put him on a top shelf to show that he is not for sale and that they are treating him. I came back days later, and he was the same. Neglected.
EDIT: I do agree with Laki, you should get permission first so that you do not get in any legal trouble.
