then I guess it might have to be pets? it isn't necessarily ideal, but 
it is a lot more specific than nothing at all. from what has been said 
though, it looks like pet=yes/pet=no may be more appropriate as species 
are already specified in the singular form (as well as most other access 
tags I can think of). it may be worth adding some potentially relevant 
species tags and the more generic pet tag to 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Access in case it's relevant to 
someone again in the future. I'm guessing you probably need to make a 
proposal and cast voting for it first though
