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.

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

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.
