Except for food, do humans need other animals?

Greetings, Theoretically, the planet as it is doesn't need most of us or most of the species out there. We, though, need many kinds of animals. For example, you mentioned pets as companies. Yes, they are excellent as companies. Cats were used centuries ago to hunt mices, as well, so you could say it was a use to us. But right now, there are lots of other species we need. And I'm not talking about food. I'm talking about bees, for example, who hold great responsibility for the maintenance of the ecosystem. Nature is wild, a savage place. But one specie is after the other - and so, we need most of them in order to keep the "balance". I say "balance" because there isn't really a harmony - it's survival of the fittest, after all. Regards!
