we all know that our main goal is spiritual evolution, but what about the animals? why are they here with us? do they came here with us to serve as foods? what is their ultimate goal or purpose?

To my understanding; speaking purely on physical terms, animals have a specific function in nature, each species has a job to do to help keep things in balance, like the various cells and organs in your body help to sustain the larger body they occupy (your physical body) likewise the animals do the same for the larger body which is this earth, this is one reason why they are around, another deeper reason based from esoteric knowledge is that animals themselves house consciousness just like us humans, yet the consciousness present within the animal is less experienced, the consciousness within the animal is either evolving or devolving, if the consciousness in the animal is evolving then it will be doing so in order to enter into the humanoid kingdom, if it is devolving then it will be going backwards so that later on it can once again enter the evolving cycle to have another chance at entering the humanoid kingdom.

To make the picture complete; Mineral<Plant<Animal<Humanoid

Animals are not just here to fill up our bellies (or each others bellies), they are a very important ingredient.

Who says animals are not going through a spiritual evolution of their own?

Science cant prove our spirit evolution - so how could they prove that of animals?

Some theosophists believe that there are different levels of existence that evolve over time. In our last phase of evolution humans were at the animal stage, and higher beings (angeloi) were at human level. Animals were at plant level, and plants at mineral level. All of these function at different levels of consciousness and evolve to higher levels, or don't make it and become "fallen beings" which end up with different duties in regards to evolution. (This is a very quick and shortened explanation)

Yes, we have human bodies now, but it is possible that later on in a future rebirth, due to our karma we may have to inhabit an animal body, this is not considered to be a fortunate rebirth, the humanoid is considered to be the pinacle species amongst all the other lifeforms on this planet, the human kingdom also serves as the platform from which further development can be attained.

We take our bodies for granted, we do not recognize how fortunate we are to have such a body albeit for a very short amount of time, soon the time will come when we will have to abandon it, some due to old age, others to illness or sudden death. Do not waste your time as there is not much of it left, seek to become a better person now and not tomorrow!

Humans are animals too.
Living Creatures, souls, physical forms.
I know for a fact that animals like a cat, for instance, possess high intelligence and communicate effectively, often, in plain english.
It seems like we all share consciousness, so if we hang out with cats, like I do, you will become more 'cat like'.  And if you hang out with drug addicts with violent tendancies, you are more likely to become like those drug addicts.
In meditation, you center your mind, and become more spiritual.  You spend time with God and the environment rather than other living creatures.

Flies, for instance, can perform manuevers that only the most advanced gravitational star craft could hope to pull off.  So animals are there to share in consciousness, and we become like them and them like us.  It's like a continual exchange of energy.
