Should i call animal control?

i was outside with my dad a few minutes ago and his neighbors have just gotten a new puppy. they put him outside in a cage and locked him in there. the puppy keeps whining and i don't think it has any food or water in there. they ignore it and one of the friend's of the family just recently came out side to talk with another friend and she yelled at the puppy to shut up. they are known for animal crulity. they have let 2 previous dogs die. they never fed them and they never took them inside when the weather got bad. should me and my dad call animal control so that way the puppy can be with a better family?

Update:

everyone in my town has been being nice to the family cause a few months ago, their oldest son got hurt playing football and he almost couldn't walk for the rest of his life. they have been taking advantage of everyone's kindness and they think they don't need to have the cops or animal control called on them.

    Call animal control and ask to remain confidential. This puppy did not ask to be put into the kennel to starve or be w/o water.

    ASk your dad to do it .... or if you choose not to walk over ask about the pup ask to see him...ask if they need anything for the pup

    You Should For Animal Cruelty, It's Unfair For The Dogs To Be Outside In A Box While Raining Suffering.

    Call animal control. It sounds like no one else is going to. If you think something is wrong then do something about it. It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks. Don't let another dog die. If they already have a history of doing that than they shouldn't be allowed to own animals. How many warnings do they need before something is done about it? Who cares about their son? That is no excuse. And as far as retaliation... call the cops. The dog doesn't chose who it ends up with. The poor thing can't even run away if it is caged. You should call animal control before this poor dog dies too.

    Just because their son "almost" got hurt doesn't make them any better than anyone else. Definitely call animal control for the sake of the puppy. Bless you for caring.

    do NOT let them get away with that!

    that is beyond wrong!

    just call the ASPCA and tell them you are concerned about a dog possibly being mistreated.

    if you don't and someone else finds out that you knew then your family could also be charged because you let that animal remain in inhumane conditions.

    Tell them that they better take care of that puppy or hand it over to someone that will. And if they don't tell them you will call animal control. If they don't seem to budge call 'cause that little pup doesn't deserve to die like that.

    Answer this it has to do with cruelty as well http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AhXm5...

    Be careful. You can start a fued if you aren't careful. You can start with several annonomous reports about barking, and even the cruelty. But at some point everyone will find out your name. Will your neighbor try to get even. Don't start a fight you can't finish.pp
