The Animalist Party Against Mistreatment of Animals[3] (Spanish: Partido Animalista Contra el Maltrato Animal; PACMA) is a Spanish political party[4] founded in Bilbao on 24 February 2003. It is focused on animal rights and animal welfare, as a part of the requirement of respect for the right to life.[5] Although its headquarters was initially in Barcelona, it is now established in Madrid.

During the Spanish elections on Sunday the 20th of December 2015, PACMA received 1.034.617 votes for the Senate and 219.000 for the Congress, but did not get a representative due to the Electoral Law. In number of votes PACMA widly overcame other parties that did get a seat in the Congress and Senate. In order to achieve a law in which every vote is worth the same, PACMA will work towards an immediate reformation of the Electoral Law from the parties that do have representation.[6]
