Founded in 2008, Meow or Never's inception at the University of Arizona as a student-led group of various majors, ages and musical interests, no doubt contributes to the diversity of the ensemble's repertoire and close-knit personality. All of the arrangements that the group performs are completed by current or graduated members of the ensemble, and the group has a tradition of ending every set with their rendition of the University of Arizona's fight song, "Bear Down, Arizona!".

Highlights from past years include performing in a Straight No Chaser music video, hosting a workshop with the Grammy-winning New York Voices, hosting an ICCA West Quarterfinal in the UA's Centennial Hall, where they won the right to advance to the 2012 ICCA Semifinal at USC, and taking 1st place at the 2015 ICCA West Quarterfinal where they advanced to the 2015 ICCA West Semifinal at Pomona College. Meow or Never performed at TEDxUarizona in 2023. Meow or Never preforms for sororities, weddings, community events, and Men's Basketball games.

In the spring semester of 2022 the group officially changed their name to Meow or Never A Cappella. The group's founder, and current Phoenix Boys Choir Artistic Director Herbie Washington, gave his blessing for the group to evolve to focus on the group's goal of performing music for its community.
