Same I complain to the employee's and I think they dread it when they hear my high heels clicking on the ground heading from the fish section. I got Akira and Maka from them and I am even more outraged after Maka lived under a month in my care dying from dropsy. I fight in honor of her memory and for Akira and Kai too.

It's simply a matter of where your heart is. You can say I refuse to buy any betta fish and yeah maybe the store will stop selling them but those betta fish nobody bought will die...it's a vicious cycle that can only be broken with a cold heart.

All this stuff about Walmart in America sounds horrible! My fish store is incredible with their betta fish! They always have 16 bettas on four shelves that cover this wall, and they are all kept in a 2.5 gallon tank. They always have the best fins ever and a nice range of colours and tails! They also have a show tank at the till, it's a 5 gallon betta cube, slow current filter, with a 5 month purple veil tail betta. The happiest little thing I have ever seen!

If you wanna make an omelet, you have to break a few eggs. Making a smart economic decision doesn't mean you have a cold heart, it means you're doing what's humane long term, and usually it does bother people.

If you look up the meaning of the word rescue at dictionary.reference.com you will find:

rescue (ˈrɛskjuː)

— vb , -cues , -cuing , -cued
1. to bring (someone or something) out of danger, attack, harm, etc; deliver or save
2. to free (a person) from legal custody by force
3. law to seize (goods or property) by force

So to buy an fish in deplorable conditions, ill, hurt, etc is absolutely considered a rescue.

My friend rescued a betta, from a terrible owner. Now I am helping by getting him over SBD, ammonia burns, shredded/torn/bitten/rotted fins... Another friend found his abandoned in a dirty stinky bowl in a house, the other fish in the other bowls already dead. He had popeye, SBD, paper thin body, rotted fins...and died in 4a couple months despite efforts.I've rescued my females as here no one wants females so they are left on the shelf, for months on end, probably stunting growth, no change in food, water changed rarely...
