In this photo provided by the The Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society shows its medical director, veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Steketee weighting Raphael, a dog found emaciated in Oct. 2013 who has been in the care of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter, in Santa Fe, N.M. Last week a swelling appeared near Raphael's shoulder. Tissue samples were removed and sent to a laboratory for analysis, revealing the cancer. Officers said the dog, who was named Raphael by shelter employees, weighed 45 pounds when he was picked up. The dog, whose health and well-being has been closely watched by a legion of Facebook followers, now weighs close to 82 pounds. (AP Photo/The Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society)

Pat Quinn's administration is making a pitch seeking more federal dollars for an experiment with housing as health care. Federal rules don't allow states to use federal Medicaid money for housing.
