Tame is a designation given to animals and vermin. Tame animals can be taken as pets and will not attack dwarves, except if they tasted dwarf blood in the past; in that case they will stay dangerous even if they are tamed.
Taming exotic animals requires having the Dungeon master noble settled.
Tame animals that are not already pets are treated as livestock, and you can ready them for slaughter (at the butcher's shop) on the z-status-animals screen. If a tame animal dies by any means other than slaughtering at a butcher's shop, it cannot be butchered; its meat and skin can not be salvaged. Once its corpse rots away, its bones and skull can be used to make objects.
Tame animals like to hang out in meeting areas and rooms.

These are the prices you pay when you trade for caged tame animals and the amounts dwarves have to spend to claim pets after the dwarven economy has started. An animal's value as a pet is independent of its material multiplier.
