Very good Monday NYT crossword from Richard Chisholm—five theme entries with *O*O starts to them, plus a related DODO, LENA OLIN's full name for a change, and a bunch of long fill entries.

James Sajdak (newbie? I don't think I recognize his name) constructed an easy Monday Sun puzzle called "Animal Shelters." Plenty of goodies in the fill, like NONTOXIC, GIT-GO, GIOTTO, and the linked ATOMIC and ENERGY.
