MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) says they've got a full house, and they're hoping you'll welcome a new four-legged friend into your home.

In a social media post Friday, the animal shelter said there is currently a national crisis of medium-large dogs waiting for new homes far longer than normal.

MADACC is not a managed intake facility, so they cannot turn away stray animals. They say they need to always have space available for incoming strays, and they need the public's help. 

Dogs with an "FH" in front of their name on the adoptable page are fully vetted and ready to go home immediately, according to the shelter. 

MADACC is waiving adoptions for these animals until further notice, however a $12 license fee will be required for Milwaukee County residents.
