Nestle Purina PetCare Co. has agreed to buy Petfinder, the online pet adoption website, from Discovery Communications LLC.

The St. Louis-based company announced the purchase Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed.

Nestle Purina says the deal, to be completed in July, will allow it to broaden support for pet welfare organizations and strengthen its role as a leading provider of online pet-related information.
