Keep them away from him.

I assume you live with them?

I wouldn't leave him unsupervised with them. Especially if the sil is treating the dogs better than him.

I'd also look into finding somewhere else to live.

Sounds like your child isn't very well disciplined.  He should not be drawing on himself and climbing onto furniture.  What do you do when you DO see these things?

I would have a good talk with them when son isn't around explaining they can either help enforce your rules by making him get down off furniture or taking away the things he is drawing with or they can be against you.  Are you living in the same household as them?

wow that sucks you have some careless people in your family. do you live alone with your dh and ds, or with them too? its hard to get rid of your mil and sil, but you can speak up for yourself, and tell them that the way they behave with your ds, is not nice. Ask them why they act this way and see what they tell you. You got to confront them.

Well, since you live with them you have to keep the peace. I would suggest a family meeting where you can talk about disipline for your son so that you are all on the same page. What is allowed, what is not allowed, time outs, warnings, etc. The last thing you want to do is get into a big conflict with them unless you have someplace else to go.
