The Party for the Animals (Dutch Partij voor de Dieren) is a political party in the Netherlands with two seats in parliament. One of its main goals is fighting for animal rights and animal welfare, though it claims not to be a single-issue party.

Chairwoman and political leader is Marianne Thieme. The party was supported in the run-up to the 22 November 2006 parliamentary elections by several Dutch celebrities, such as writers Maarten 't Hart and Jan Wolkers.

It is the world's first party to gain parliamentary seats with an agenda focused primarily on animal rights.
