    This is heartbreaking, Mandy. And a very difficult situation for you. You've been given a ton of well intended advice but you are the only one who can decide what, if anything, you can do about it. They are your husband's parents and the grandparents of your little one so it's a very sticky situation. I'd consult with your husband, let him know how much it bothers you (if you haven't already) and make a plan of action from there.
    At the very least, you should not have to hear about the neglect and abuse. You can not control ignorance if ignorance is the chosen course. Very sad.

    I believe most places will allow you to report anonymously, which may be an option when dealing with family. Getting their bad behaviors on record with animal control is important. Even if you do not hear of them following up and pursuing the issue, this at least puts them on the radar with the animal control authority for any other additional reports that come in. This is the first step on the roadway to having them banned from owning pets or having pets in the home, which would be the ideal imo.

    There is no reason you have to tell them you called and reported them, and I wouldn't personally threaten them with doing so, just take the action of doing so.

    Calling the authorities to let them know you've heard from them about their dog that has a broken leg that has not had medical care is where I'd start.

    The sad thing is, the children they take care of will learn from them about taking care of animals. In their case its not a good thing.

    I would call the authorities and ask them to do a welfare inspection of the property. Pretty horrendous - more so because these people are part of your family now...yeesh. That sucks.
