Question Betta Adoption?

So I was just wondering, does anybody know any safe places to adopt a betta? Like any websites that you guys trust? For my next betta I would like to adopt. Is there such thing as not giving out your address but still being able to adopt or buy? Thanks!

I think the safest way is Aquabid using Paypal for payment. Paypal does have buyer protection.
For trustable sellers, just go over their feedback. It's still little of a gamble to expect your experience to be the same as those who gave good feedback but good sellers are not out to scam people, they care more about their reputation and will accomodate you if there are any problems with your purchase.
But I'm wondering how are you going to have a fish sent to you without giving out your address?
Maybe you can find a breeder near you who allows pickups?
Other than that, it would be to buy them at a petstore... you don't need to give your info for that.

I will be adopting him out. If anyone is interested in him and is willing to pay me $12 total then I will ship him out.

I adopted my boy Loki from appledust on this forum. She didn't expect payment until after he arrived, which he did safe and sound. I have a PO Box so I wasn't concerned about giving out my address. I wasn't looking for a fourth fish, but sometimes the unexpected happens, and I am glad I could help her give him a good home!
