Sarasota is more than just great weather and miles of white, sandy beaches.
Our year round sunshine bathes top rated schools and hospitals, unparalleled arts and culture, world class golf courses, fishing, boating and more.
It's no wonder that Forbes has named Sarasota one of the best places for business and careers, and Money Magazine has recognized Sarasota as the nation's best small city, one of the best places to retire, and one of the cities with the best health care systems.
Sean McCutcheon is proud to be a part of this community and he is committed to making Sarasota and Southwest Florida an even better place to live, work, and play.
Sean takes advantage of every possible opportunity to give back to the community and he continually strives to make Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. a positive presence in Sarasota and throughout Southwest Florida.
In addition to Sean's personal commitment to giving back to the community, Sean encourages and supports his co-workers when they volunteer and support local charities.
Here are some of the charitable and community organizations that Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. is proud to support:
Mote Marine Laboratory
Sean and the team at Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. have logged over 100 hours at Mote Marine Laboratory's Dolphin and Whale Hospital and their Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital. Sean has completed the required training course and worked numerous shifts in the Dolphin and Whale hospital in order to be officially recognized as a Mote Volunteer.
The Stranding Investigations Program at Mote Marine Laboratory offers 24-hour response to sick, injured or deceased marine mammals and sea turtles within Southwest Florida's coastal waters, and it provides logistical support to biologists throughout the state in the verification and rescue of sick, injured, and deceased manatees and endangered species.
Stranded whales, dolphins, and sea turtles are recovered and transported to Mote's Dolphin and Whale Hospital or the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital where they are treated and released back into their natural habitats. In the case of deceased animals, a detailed necropsy (animal autopsy) is conducted. The results of these post-mortem examinations help the scientists at Mote Marine Laboratory evaluate long-term mortality trends of these species, especially as it relates to pathology or human-related activities.
Sean McCutcheon is deeply committed to the preservation of our oceans and marine life, as well as the protection of our world renowned beaches. Sean understands that the type of research being conducted at Mote Marine Laboratory is crucial to species management and conservation. That is why Sean is a proud supporter of Mote Marine Laboratory and their Stranding Investigations Program.

Honore Animal Rescue
Sean's love of animals extends beyond the rich marine life of Southwest Florida. Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. supports a number of animal rescue organizations that promote the humane treatment of all animals.
Sean believes all rescue animals deserve a loving home and he has rescued several dogs over the years. Most recently, Sean adopted a dog from the Honore Animal rescue which he also supports with generous donations.
Most dogs that come into the Honore Animal Rescue were not given up because they were "bad dogs" or because of behavioral problems. Many people buy dogs without thinking about the time commitment, hard work, and expense involved in keeping a dog, these dogs often end up in shelters, on the side of the road or, if they're lucky, in rescue.
The Honore Animal Rescue also takes in dachshunds from kill shelters, where they end up after being lost or because they are raised in puppy mills where they are used as breeding machines and discarded when they are no longer needed. These dogs often turn out to be the most loving and affectionate dogs because they are grateful to have left their miserable pasts behind forever.

Sarasota Little League
Sean strongly believes that sports, whether individual or team based, provide our children numerous benefits that extend far beyond the obvious physical activity. Participating in sports can help build self-esteem and self-confidence, it can motivate children to excel academically, and it can help build social skills to name but a few.
Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. supports local schools, and youth athletic organizations like the Sarasota Little League.
The Sarasota Little League offers boys and girls ages 4 to 16 and their families the opportunity to come together in an activity that benefits everyone involved. Coaches, Players, Parents, Volunteers and Sponsors all know that the Sarasota Little League is "A Place for Families".

Sarasota Sun Devils
Sean's commitment to youth athletics goes beyond just baseball. Sean McCutcheon's Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. is also proud to support the Sarasota Sun Devils and their commitment to good sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork.
For over 25 years, this all volunteer organization has brought youth football & cheerleading to children ages 5 to 15, and their dedication to the development of good citizens off the field through the skills they teach on the field is unwavering. Pop Warner is the only national youth sports organization that requires scholastic aptitude in order to participate.
Pop Warner Football only recognizes the athletic accomplishments of the team, not the individual. They don't track personal tallies of touchdowns, yards rushing per game, sacks or blocked kicks. They simply applaud the athletic efforts of the team in order to reinforce the importance of teamwork. Whether the kids have a good day or a bad day on the field, they are always an integral part of the team.
The Sun Devil cheerleaders do more than just cheer on the football players, they work all season to master the skills required for the Conference and National competitions, and their efforts have really paid off. In 2011, all four of the cheerleading teams advanced from the Peace River Conference Cheer-Off to the Regionals in Orlando. The Junior Pee Wee squad won 1st Place at the 2011 Southeast Regional and they placed 2nd at the Pop Warner National Cheer Championship held at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports.
