Always difficult when you see one that will inevitably die... sigh. You can't steal though, that will be illegal, even if their owner is irresponsible. In cases of animal cruelty, there are usually organisations you can call. Fish however, don't get the luxury :( ppl are never as concerned, but you could try.
If I were you, I would print out a sheet of betta care information of some sort. Then leave it next to the tank with a nice note. Especially if you do not have space to takeover her care. If you confront her too aggressively, chances are she will become defensive.
By the way, even if its a 5 gallon with lots of plants, dont put her together with a male betta. They will eventually kill. You could maybe try with a divider.
