USA Fish Rescue Map and Contact List 

(Not just for betta fish)

Fish rescues take in fish that are sick or suffering from poor conditions at pet stores or fish that have been surrendered by owners. Rescues treat illnesses, rehabilitate fish, and many help find them new homes.

Adopting a fish is an option and an alternative to buying one from a pet chain where fish, especially bettas, can endure poor conditions in transit and because staff don't always have the time or training to care for them.
