Secondary services offered by a facility

A structure of any tipe (e.g. a veterinary, an animal shelter, or anything else) can give secondary services, like boarding pets or recovery stray animals. In this case the facilty should be tagged with the main purpose (e.g. amenity=veterinary, amenity=animal_shelter, tourism=hotel) and then add a secondary tag that is:

Tag Description
animal_boarding=yes/no/<species>[;<species>...] Boarding service is offered for listed animals; use yes only if you don't know species accepted.
For more info on how to set <species>, see below Animal species accepted.
animal_shelter=yes/no/<species>[;<species>...] Shelter service is offered for listed animals; use yes only if you don't know species accepted.
For more info on how to set <species>, see below Animal species accepted.
