TERRANCE WADE RAY charged with animal cruelty after Shih Tzu found in a coma in trash can

Updated: May 15

- Alabama, USA -


UPDATE: May 14, 2021


I have heard back from the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.


District Attorney Daryl D. Bailey tells me that Missy, who was 14 years old, “had to be euthanized because of the extent of her injuries.


Attorney Bailey also said that when RAY committed this crime, he was out on bond for robbery.


As I said before, Voice For Us is in favor of the death penalty for animal abusers and the disbarring of those judges who allow animal cruelty to continue!


R.I.P. Missy




~ Original story:


On Tuesday, May 11, authorities have arrested 20-year-old TERRANCE WADE RAY (pictured below).


Montgomery Advertiser reports that according to RAY’s charging documents, on Tuesday morning an animal control officer responded to a home on Bridlewood Drive after receiving a report about a dog being put in a trash can.


When the officer arrived on the scene, the caller was already talking to two Montgomery Police officers.


According to the arrest affidavit, the complainant “saw Terrance Ray holding his significant other's dog by the nape while blood was pouring from the dog's mouth/head.”


The victim, a Shih Tzu named Missy, was comatose.


As reported by Montgomery Advertiser, court records state that multiple witnesses told police they saw RAY holding the furbaby.


One witness told police he saw RAY put Missy in the trash can at the front of their home.


Reportedly, there were pools of blood by the trash can.


Court records further state that RAY had several wounds on his hands and his clothes had stains that appeared to be blood.


According to Montgomery Advertiser, the veterinarian who examined Missy “advised her initial prognosis to be blunt force trauma.”


The worthless human feces was charged with first-degree cruelty to a dog, a Class C felony.


He was booked into the Montgomery County Detention Facility with a $5,000 bond.


TERRANCE WADE RAY, why should your life matter to me if other beings’ lives do not matter to you!?


I have emailed Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl D. Bailey to inquire about Missy.

If I get a response, I will post an update.
