Evolution among animals has resulted in just about every social arrangement human beings have ever invented, plus a good many more. We ought to be hesitant about drawing political, social or moral conclusions from them, because every example in nature has its counterexample.

Shoot, the cats & dogs have already won.
We feed them, clean up after them, care for their health, open doors when they want us to, provide them with a warm, comfy place to sleep, and heap love upon them.
I don't see them going to work every day to put food on the table.
Maybe we should be the one's planning something...

They don't have to pay bills, or even work. They get to live for free and "WE" have to feed them , give them water, give them a comfortable place to sleep . They don't even have to worry about predators trying to eat them like out in the wild. We treat them way better than family members, lol.
There is no reason for them to go against us.

Technically.... that's one of the excuses that was used to continue slavery... just sayin...
